The 33-year-old, whose career has been plagued by injury, has not yet discussed a new deal with the club, and feels that is an indication that he will be a free agent in the summer.

"At the moment, it looks like the club is no longer planning with me," he told the Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper.

"But it is fair enough that they don't go out of their way for a player who has been out injured for a year and is now 33."

Owomoyela's last appearance for Dortmund came just over a year ago, on April 28.

He has since struggled with a calf injury and a stress fracture in his heel, failing with several attempts at a comeback.

Capped 11 times by Germany, Owomoyela - who played for an hour for Dortmund's reserves yesterday - last pulled on his national team's shirt in March 2006.

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
