Ghana midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong has turned the opportunity to team up with Gennaro Gattuso at OFI Crete down.
The former Arsenal midfielder is without a club following his release from Barnsley at the end of last season.
But he was offered a 12-month deal at the Greek club, who are managed by AC Milan hero Gattuso.
Frimpong, however, has decided against moving to Greece despite having the opportunity of working alongside Gattuso, who was also a defensive midfielder.
The 22-year-old, who helped establish popular clothing brand Dench alongside UK rapper Lethal Bizzle, has also recently failed to agree a contract at Strum Graz.
The midfielder had a three week trial at Austrian club but couldnâ€™t agree on a contract.
