Liverpool attacker Dirk Kuyt has admitted he is interested in a move to Hamburg this summer, if he becomes surplus to requirements at Anfield.
The Holland international had to deal with not being a first choice under Kenny Dalglish last season and was expected to depart Merseyside this summer, but the Scot’s sacking has altered the situation.
Kuyt may decide to remain at Liverpool if the new manager can guarantee him more playing time than he received last season.
“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,” he told Bild.
The 32-year-old confirmed that Hamburg had shown an interest in his services, but maintained that nothing was decided and that nothing would be for now.
“Yes. HSV is an option. I am proud that such a great, wonderful club have shown interest in me. But, there are other offers,” he added.
Kuyt admitted he was disappointed to not have played more last season and revealed he would make a decision about what to do after Euro 2012.
"Yes. Everything is settled with my agent Rob Jansen,” he replied when asked if his future would become clear after the competition in Poland and Ukraine.
“My agent knows what I want. He controls everything for me.
“I played less than I wanted last season. That was very disappointing and annoying.”
The former Feyenoord forward is currently training with the Netherlands side ahead of the tournament, which they will go into as third favourites.
