Speaking at a press conference on Thursday, Kohfeldt revealed that the wantaway forward till not be involved when Werder open their Bundesliga campaign against Hertha BSC on Saturday after struggling with a knee injury in pre-season. Ömer Toprak and Kevin Möhwald will miss out as well.
"Ömer Toprak and Milot Rashica are not available, and Kevin Möhwald is still working on his return to fitness, but all other players are available," said the Werder coach.
Werder sporting director Frank Baumann addressed speculation about Rashica's future, once again admitting that Aston Villa are among the 24-year-old's suitors.
"There are several interested parties, and Aston Villa are one of them. As we have repeatedly emphasized, it's still possible that Rashica will be here on October 5. I am reluctant to provide info on preliminary talks," he said.
