Djourou open to permanent Hamburg move

Djourou open to permanent Hamburg move

On loan defender Johan Djourou says he’s enjoying life at Hamburg and is open to a permanent move to the club this summer.

The Swiss centre-half has made 15 league appearances for the Bundesliga side this season, as they battle against relegation.

Although Arsenal are short on central-defenders, and will be on the look-out in the summer with Thomas Vermaelen a likely departure, it does seem as if there’s no chance of a Gunners return.

“I know the coach, I love the club, I love the city,” Djourou told Bild. “HSV is incredible. The club has so much potential. We have to go way up.

“The fans are great. The mood is different than in England. If all goes well and the club also want to, I would stay.”

Fan of Arsenal, Robert Pires and most everything to do with rum and whiskey. Smiter of those that ought to be smote.
