Bobby Wood asks to leave Hamburg, return to Bundesliga


Bobby Wood appears set on leaving Hamburg this summer.

According to coach Christian Titz, Wood has informed the 2. Bundesliga club that he wishes to leave in an effort to join a Bundesliga club. Wood scored three goals in 25 matches for the team this past season as Hamburg was relegated from the top flight.

“[He] informed us that he wants to leave the club and continue to play [in the] Bundesliga,” coach Christian Titz said. “We’ll wait and see what will happen after the talks in the coming days and whether there will be a transfer. If he opts to stay here, then he will be a member of the squad.”

Wood was recently linked with a move to Hannover while Dynamo Kiev is also reportedly interested in bringing the forward to the Ukranian league.

Hamburg is set to begin preseason preparations this weekend.


  1. Who would want……I mean what team in their right mind would…….like what the..??? Asked to leave to be in the Bundesliga???? Wow


  2. Maybe he needs to set his sights lower, like the Dutch first division (Mexico’s Lozano played there last season). If he does well there and regains his confidence, then he probably would have a number of suitors calling. Kiev is usually in the Champions League or at least the Europa League, so that wouldn’t be too bad, either, if he doesn’t mind living in Ukraine.

      • Using HSV team news and press release as an indicator, Wood, as of yet, hasn’t (actively) trained with team upon start of pre-season. I think HSV paid around 2 million Euro for him? That’s definitely an issue for a seamless transfer back to top flight ball. (With that said, even teen phenom Arp wasn’t a factor with an ineffective HSV midfield this past season).

      • Agree, he isn’t a top striker but with a little service he can still be useful and probably contribute at a low price
