Bremen confirm Burowski interest

Werder Bremen director of sport Klaus Allofs has confirmed contact has been made with the Bayern Munich midfielder Tim Borowski about a return to the club. Borowski, who is also reportedly a target of English Premier League club Aston Villa, has been told he is surplus to requirements at Bayern just a year after joining on a free transfer from Bremen. And Allofs says the 29 year old is an option they are seriously looking at after confirming he had "discussed things" with the former Germany international. "If the financial side of things is right, and we are convinced that signing him back would make sense for our squad, then we will deal with it," added Allofs in the Kreiszeitung Syke newspaper. "It is no secret that we are still looking for one or two additions and Tim could be a solution." Borowski is due to return to Munich on Wednesday where he has already been told that he does not figure in the plans of the new coach Louis van Gaal. Of Bremen's interest, Borowski said: "It's very interesting. We'll have to see how things develop."
