German outfit FC Koln chief Jörg Schmadtke has ruled out moving for Arsenal attacker Lukas Podolski.
Schmadtke admits they’ve held talks with Podolski’s camp about the striker returning to his old club.
However, he has also admitted that a deal is off the agenda as they cannot give him the kind of offer Podolski wants.
As quoted on the BILD website, he said: “I am very glad that we had this conversation with him and his advisers.
“We were able to get beyond some confusion that had accumulated. But he and we know very well that it is not possible for the FC to put together the offer he wishes.”
