Goalkeeper René Adler has decided against renewing his Hamburg contract which is due to expire in June.
Although, Hamburg had offered the 32 year old a new contract but the former Germany international decided to look for a new challenge after five years with Die Rothosen
Sporting director Jens Todt said: “We respect René and his wish to move on from the club. He was one of the faces of the club for over five years.
“We thank him for his efforts in Hamburg colours and wish him all the best at his next club,” Todt concluded.
Adler joined Hamburg from Bayer Leverkusen in 2012.
