Ghana midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong has been released by relegated English Championship club Barnsley just under six months of joining the side, can confirm.

The 22-year-old is in a list of fourteen players considered surplus to requirement at the club.

Frimpong only joined Barnsley in January from Premier League giants Arsenal in a move that was supposed to jump-start his career.

The Ghana international had endured a torrid spell with injuries during his three-year stay in the first team of the Gunners.

He was however unable to make the expected impact after making nine appearances for The Tykes in a season that ended in massive disappointed as the side got relegated from the English championship.

The ex Charlton Athletic and Fulham loanee must now quickly find a new club in order to save his football career.

Frimpong’s football career has now taken a massive hit after being considered as one of the most exciting young prospects some few years back.

He is highly unlikely to make Ghana’s squad for the 2014 World Cup which now leaves him with no major platform on which to audition for a new club.

The Kumasi-born who has played once for the Black Stars is now left to leverage on his fast wading reputation as youthful potential to land his next contract.

His free agent status could however prove a positive preposition for interested clubs.

    Social media is for the chicks but Frimmy is addictted to it. No wonder his pals got him naked with a common 480 x 320 image. I dont see this kid making it anywhere if he cant make it in the championship. Maybe he should go for a degree in ICT and venture into social media creation

    The earlier he stops playing soccer on tweeter and gets serious with his career de better for him. He has good potential bt he is wasting it on tweeter. He shd forget about Black Stars for now.

    I don't think Frimmy is expecting a call up.he's managed to criticise everyone but himself ..he seem to enjoy the unnecessary attention he gets on social media more then focus on football .he is still very young n I hope he comes back n proof everyone wrong Cus he's got some talent #staydench#leaveit#
