Podolski in no rush to decide future
Lukas Podolski insists he will discuss his future with Cologne before considering the many offers he has received.
Germany striker Podolski has revealed he is considering leaving Cologne, his hometown club, but he will not be rushed into making a decision.
"I will talk to Cologne before anybody else and see what they have to say," he told ZDF television after scoring twice in his side's 2-2 draw with Stuttgart. "Of course I am getting plenty of offers and I expect more of them to arrive to me, to my agent or to my club in the coming weeks, but I repeat: I must first talk to Cologne."
He added: "I have become more relaxed about things in general. There is no rush. I will just sit down and discuss things with Cologne and then we will have to see."
Podolski, 26, has 18 months remaining on his contract at Cologne having rejoined the club from Bayern Munich in 2009.
