DiarioSport says the striker is already frustrated after being frozen out by coach Bernd Schuster in the early weeks of the season. He was left completely out of the squad for the draw at Valladolid and faces the same prospect for tonight's game against Betis.

Soldado, who won a place in the Spain's squad thanks to his form last season with Osasuna, can expect a flurry of offers should he demand a move when the market reopens.
