Rapid defender Maximilian Ullmann remains in Hütteldorf for the time being, a transfer to Bielefeld is off the table.
The newcomer to the German Bundesliga has long been considered a new destination for the 25-year-old, but the Upper Austrian will continue to play in green and white.
Bielefeld has loaned Lennart Czyborra from FC Genua and thus filled the vacant position on the left side of the defense.
“We haven't been able to reach an agreement with Rapid Vienna so far and we accept that too. Our position is definitely such that we don't just pay the price that is required just because we now have a little more money,” said sports director Samir Arabi .
“For us this is not a market-driven price or a realistic overall package for a player who still has a ten-month contract,” the Bielefeld boss explains.
