Hamburg midfielder David Jarolim expects to leave the Bundesliga outfit at the end of the season.
The Czech Republic international has lost his first-team place and his contract is set to expire at the end of the season.
And with Hamburg focusing on youth, Jarolim is getting ready to leave, although the 32-year-old has ruled out any possibility of retiring.
He told Hamburger Morgenpost: "The club said they are to further develop youngsters in the future and focus on that.
"I have to deal with this and I am to respect these decisions. I am not here to create any fuss. This club has a place in my heart."
He added: "I am on a deal to expire at the end of the season. I want to play on, I am still too young to retire.
"At this moment it looks as if I am leaving Hamburg in the coming summer. It seems that both parties want this to happen then."
