Michael Gregoritsch has made it clear that he wants to leave Augsburg when the transfer window opens in January.

The 25-year-old has been one of the club's stand-out performers for years, but has slipped down the pecking order this season.


"It's clear to me that I want to leave Augsburg in the winter so that I can play regularly and make myself attractive for the national team," Gregoritsch said in an interview with Krone.

Gregoritsch came close to a move to Werder Bremen in the summer, but ultimately had to stay at WWK Arena because the two clubs could't agree on a transfer fee.

"It's an open secret that I could have left and that there was an offer on the table. In the summer, the opportunity was there for me and the club. It was a win-win situation," Gregoritsch said.

Gregoritsch has started just four Bundesliga games this season.
