Chrisantus Wants Las Palmas Exit
Contractual Issues Keeping Chrisantus Out
2007 FiFA Under-17 golden boot and silver ball winner, Macaulay Chrisantus is being kept out of the Las Palmas first team due to contractual issues according to a source close to the former Hamburg teenager.
Chrisantus joined Spanish second division side, Las Palmas two years ago after enduring a frustrating four years at Hamburg in Germany where he failed to make an appearance for the main team.
He signed a two year deal on a free transfer after terminating the remaining one year of his deal with Hamburg and with his contract due to expire this summer, the big striker fondly called ‘BIG CHRIS’ has refused Las Palmas offer of a new contract and wants to try his luck elsewhere.
His refusal according to a source close to him, forced the team hierarchy to freeze him out of the first team activities and games.
"He is not injured but his refusal to sign a new deal has cost him his place,” revealed the source.
"He is hell bent on leaving Las Palmas this summer and he has made his intention known to the management that didn't go down well with them and they prefer playing a youngster whose future is with them than Chrisantus who has already revealed he is leaving."
Last season Chrisantus was top scorer for Las Palmas with 12 goals leading them to the La-Liga play- offs where they lost out on promotion to Elche.
However the 23 year old has found the net just 7 times this season from 21 games despite not playing for the team since February 22nd when they defeated Girona 2-1.
In the past he was rumoured to have been a subject of inquiry from La-Liga side Levante and Malaga but according to leaks gathered by SL10 he is most likely headed to the Eastern European block with Poland his likely destination in the summer.
