Sydney FC coach Vitezslav Lavicka wants the club to help find striker Juho Makela a new team.

Makela was signed in January but left out of the ACL squad thanks to the limits on foreign players.

But Lavicka was insistent it would be a loan deal, and Makela would not be released from his contract with Sydney FC.

"He was upset when I told him he was left out, but he received the news in a professional way," Lavicka told the Daily Telegraph.
