Eriksson said of his fellow countryman: "If he wants to go, we said okay. If he wants to go I understand it absolutely, it's totally up to him."
But the Manager added of his 26-year-old stopper: "Andreas is extremely professional, he didn't like my decision of course, that's understandable and he's disappointed.
"But there has not been one bad word, he's working as hard as the others and doing fantastic training.
"I've heard a lot of rumours from different countries, but so far there has been not one word to the Club or me.
"I spoke to Andreas on Thursday and asked him if he had a club and he said 'no'."
