Muller set for Hamburg exit


Reports in the German media claim Hamburg forward Nicolai Muller will be available in the January transfer window for 8-10m euros.

Premier League clubs Southampton and West Ham United both showed an interest in the 30-year-old winger in the summer but were unable to get a deal done.

However, the duo may fancy another crack at trying to lure him to England after German media outlet Sport Bild suggested on Monday that the diminutive schemer has been told he is free to leave in the new year.

The former Mainz star has fallen down the pecking order under coach Markus Gisdol, with just 15 minutes of Bundesliga action under his belt this season and it may well be that a winter exit might be best for all parties concerned.

Whether or not Muller is a player suited to the physical nature of the Premier League is open to debate as he stands at just under 5ft 7in and may find himself a target for burley defenders.
