Mark van Bommel wants new contract at Bayern Munich
Tuesday 22 December 2009
Captain Mark van Bommel has urged Bayern Munich to offer him a new contract.
The Netherlands international is out of contract at the Allianz Arena at the end of the current season but has welcomed reports that the Bundesliga giants are preparing to offer him fresh terms.
"I have heard that negotiations will take place during our training camp in Dubai," said the 32-year-old midfielder.
"There are many contracts running out so I am curious to see what happens.
"I still feel like I am at home in Munich. I had the opportunity to move last season on better conditions and with a longer term, but it is hard to turn your back on FC Bayern.
"You know what you have got here. I could have earned more money elsewhere, but the important thing is the club you represented when you retire."
Struggling Nurnberg have parted company with coach Michael Oenning.
The board decided to take action after Nurnberg signed off the first half of the Bundesliga season second bottom of the table after taking just 12 points from 17 games.
"We have remained below our requirements," said president Franz Schafer following Sunday's 3-0 defeat at Cologne.
"After long discussions and analyses, we have decided to part company with our head coach Michael Oenning.
"We are all very sorry to have to take this step."
Schalke have agreed a deal to sign Norway international Tore Reginiussen when the transfer window reopens in January.
The 23-year-old defender will join the Royal Blues from Tromso for an undisclosed fee.
"Tore is a very talented young player, so it's good that he'll be linking up with us in the winter break as that will allow us to ease him into the Bundesliga gently," confirmed head coach Felix Magath.
Reginiussen will join the Bundesliga side on a three-a-and-half year contract.
