Galatasaray are interested in taking Dennis Rommedahl from Charlton.Galatasaray are interested in taking Dennis Rommedahl from Charlton, according to club director Fatih Goksen.
Upon Charlton's relegation the Danish flyer made clear he had little interest in plying his trade in the Championship and it now looks as if the former PSV Eindhoven winger is ready to end his English sojourn.
Goksen has confirmed that he has engaged in preliminary discussions with Rommedahl's agent but it remains to be seen whether they can strike an accord with Charlton.
Should Rommedahl successfully complete a switch to Galatasaray then he will be joined in Turkey by fellow Scandinavian Tobias Linderoth, with the former Everton man having moved to the Istanbul-based club from FC Copenhagen.
"We are interested in Rommedahl but we have yet to reach any definite agreement. I don't want to go into details, but we have been in contact with Dennis Rommedahl's agent and have also spoken with his club," Goksen told 24timer.
"We think that Rommedahl would fit very well into our team - we need a player in his position and he has all the characteristics of a Galatasaray player."
