After his deadline day move fell through, Milot Rashica could leave Werder Bremen in January instead – but only if the price is right, insists club boss Frank Baumann.

Werder Bremen will not sell wantaway forward Milot Rashica 'below value,' sporting director Frank Baumann has underlined.
Rashica was widely expected to leave Werder during the summer transfer window, but the 24-year-old, who was priced at around €20 million, ended up staying after his deadline day move to Bayer Leverkusen collapsed.
He could now potentially be on the move in January instead, but only if the price is right.
"It's still the case that we will not sell him below value," Baumann told Kicker.
Rashica, who has struggled to reproduce his best form after returning from a knee injury, made his first start of the season in last week's 1-1 draw with FC Köln.
In any case, Werder will not let the Kosovo international play just to prevent him from dropping value, according to Baumann.
"This is not an issue for us. For Milot, it is all the more important that he concentrates on the here and now, and I have the feeling that is exactly what he does. He was very committed against Köln, even if not everything worked out for him. Milot has the quality to deal with the situation."
