Bayer Leverkusen striker Stefan Kiessling has revealed his desire to leave his German club in the January transfer window in search of more first-team opportunities.
The 31-year old stated this in an interview with Sky Sports in Germany after his team’s 5-0 win over Borussia Moenchengladbach last weekend.
Speaking on his future, Kiessling said: “I have given it a thought and I will keep thinking about it. The situation is that of course of course I will like to be playing – I have been here for 10 years and love the club and everybody knows how happy I am here. I’ve got a good relationship with the fans and also with the club.
“I love playing here and I love this club, and its overall very, very difficult situation and everybody knows this. I will be playing a bit of football at the end of my career and that is why I’ve got to give things good thought, I will speak to the bosses and see what the best solution.”
Though age is not on his side at 31, Stefan Kiessling could prove useful as a short-term fix for Liverpool’s well-documented striking problems if he makes the move to Anfield. Since the transfer of Mexican striker Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez from Manchester United to Bayer Leverkusen, Kiessling has moved down the pecking order in attack at the Bay Arena.
