LONDON, April 14 (Reuters) - Croatian striker
Davor Suker is to be given a free transfer by
Arsenal at the end of the season, halfway
through his two-year contract with the English
premier league club. Manager Arsene Wenger
said on Friday he did not feel it fair that a
player with international ambitions should be
confined to a peripheral first team role with the
club.

"Davor has done really well for us but we have
not been able to use him as often as he would
have liked," Wenger said.

"A player of his ability deserves to be playing
regularly so we will be letting him go. There is
no animosity.

"He has paid the price for the way Thierry
Henry has exploded this season. It means that I
have Davor, Thierry, Dennis Bergkamp and
N***wo Kanu for two positions."

Arsenal signed Suker for two million pounds
($3.17 million) from Real Madrid at the start of
the season.

Suker, who was the tournament's top scorer in
the last World Cup in France when Croatia
finished third, might remain in London by moving
to West Ham.

Manager Harry Redknapp said: "Suker is a top
quality player and we would be interested in
him."

Big shame. Very few have Suker's class.
