Ghana defender Daniel Opare could leave Belgian Pro League side Standard Liege after dragging his feet on signing a contract extension.
Opare’s three year contract will run out in June next year and will be available for free after the 2014 World Cup finals.
Standard Liege have no option but to sell the Ghana international during the winter transfer window if he is adamant in signing a new deal.
“We are in talks with both players to extend their contracts. They are still stuck. For now, there is no reason why they would leave in January,” Technical director Jean-François De Sart said.
Opare joined the club in 2010 from Real Madrid where series of injuries kept him on the sidelines.
The versatile wing-back is set to make Ghana’s squad for the upcoming World Cup tournament after featuring prominently in the qualifiers.
