Timo Glock has moved away from Cologne, the locally based Express newspaper claims.

The German driver only recently moved to Junkersdorf, a suburb to the west of Cologne and just a five minute drive to Toyota's formula one headquarters.

But Glock is quoted as insisting his schedule simply did not give him time to make the most of his proximity to the team, and is believed to have moved two hours away to Frankfurt.

Reportedly the move, close to the international airport, is to be closer to his girlfriend Isabell.

Last week Glock, 27, dismissed as "a rumour" reports that he is a contender for Heikki Kovalainen's McLaren seat in 2010.

Glock is believed to have a firm Toyota contract for 2010, but another big rumour in the Nurburgring paddock was that the Japanese carmaker may be close to announcing its decision to withdraw from formula one.
