Werling wanted to leave Darlington

It appears that Simon Davey's new signing Dominik Werling has wanted to leave Darlington for several weeks. An alledged training ground incident probably sparked his request.

On August 14th Darlington manager Mark Cooper spoke about Dominik Werling.

"He wants to leave the club," Cooper told the Northern Echo.

"He’s told us he wants to go back to Germany, apparently his mother’s ill.

"We’ll not let him go for nothing to an English club.

"I think it’s important that we get that on record.

"To be fair to the club they brought him in, they have paid for his accommodation but he wants to go.

"Somebody wants him. If an English club wants him they’ve got my mobile number, they can ring me and I’ll tell them how much he’s going to cost."

The paper went on to mention that Simon Davey was interested in trying to bring him to Edgar Street.

Cooper knew he was unsettled.

"He’s got a fantastic left foot, you can see he’s played at a high level," he said.

"But that’s not what it’s all about. Football is also about attitude and commitment to the cause and at this moment he hasn’t got it because he doesn’t want to be here."
