This year's winter training camp sees the Rapid squad on the Spanish coast in Benidorm, up to and including Thursday this week. The team were being put through their paces in daily training sessions, before competing in friendly fixtures.
One player though has departed the training camp early: following conversations with senior officials, Thomas Schrammel has left Spain with immediate effect. The full-back has returned to Austria, where he will head straight to Graz to complete a medical before completing a move to Sturm.
Sporting Director Fredy Bickel: "After further conversations involving SK Rapid, Thomas Schrammel and Sturm Graz, we have reached an agreement in principle. Thomas will travel to Graz to complete the necessary medical examinations. Once that has been completed its likely that everything will move quickly."
