Mathew Leckie has expressed desire to leave Hertha BSC when the summer transfer window opens.
The 29-year-old, who has been limited to just five league games this season, told the Fox Football Podcast via AAP:
"I sort of had a feeling that it would be a tough year. I was thinking about leaving already at the start of the season but my wife was pregnant ... we had the hospital and everything set up so for family reasons I decided to stay here for another season.
"The frustrating point is just that pretty much the opportunity hasn't come around to even have the chance to play well.
"Just a change is what's needed. Obviously I'll try to get a move in the summer, it's just finding out what's the best thing to do."
Leckie's contract with Hertha runs until 2021.
