Hamburg have revealed they are interested in signing Liverpool midfielder Dietmar Hamann.

The 31-year-old’s contract at Anfield expires this summer and Hamburg sporting director Dietmar Beiersdorfer said they were keen to sign him.

“I have spoken to Hamann, I can imagine him playing for us. But several English clubs are offering him three-year contracts,” said Beiersdorfer.

“We don’t want to offer him that length of deal. We’ll have to wait and see.”

Hamburg have just signed Ajax’s highly-rated playmaker Rafael van der Vaart.
