Hamburg an option for Kuyt should he depart Liverpool

Dirk Kuyt has admitted he could sign for Hamburg should he Liverpool’s new manager decide to sell him in the summer according to Bild.

The Dutch international’s future is under threat after seven years at Anfield after struggling to force his way into Kenny Dalglish’s first eleven this season

Dalglish was reportedly prepared to sell the out-of-favour 32-year-old for as little as £1 million but his departure has given the striker hope that he could remain on Merseyside beyond the current campaign.

However it all depends on who owners Fenway Sports Group choose to takeover from the Kop legend and Kuyt has acknowledged that a move to the Bundesliga with Hamburg is an option whilst disclosing that he as other offers on the table.

Speaking to German newspaper he said: “If Liverpool get a new coach who wants to keep me and wants to give me more games than last season, then that is a possibility.

“Yes. HSV is an option. I am proud that such a great, wonderful club have shown interest in me. But, there are other offers.”

It was rumoured that he will decide on his future intentions after Euro 2012 confirming in the interview with Bild that he will reach a verdict after the tournament stating that his agent is aware of his desires.

“Yes. Everything is settled with my agent Rob Jansen.” He said.

“My agent knows what I want. He controls everything for me.”

Kuyt has become a cult hero at Liverpool since arriving from Feyenoord for £10 million in prior to the 2005/06 campaign and has become a true fans favourite due to his work ethic and devotion to the club.

He’s since gone on to play 285 times of the Reds scoring 71 goals winning the League Cup earlier this season and picking up runners up medals in the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup.
