Kinkladze eyes Derby exit
Giorgi Kinkladze
Kinkladze could be heading to Turkey
Derby's unsettled midfielder Georgi Kinkladze could be on his way to either Galatasaray or Hamburg.

The 28-year-old Georgia international insisted that Turkish club Galatasaray had been in contact with Derby.

Meanwhile, the player's agent admitted German side Hamburg were also interested.

Kinkladze has fallen out of favour with Derby boss John Gregory after a loss of form and a string of injuries since he was bought from Ajax for 3m in 1999 by former Rams manager Jim Smith.

"Yesterday Derby manager John Gregory told me that Galatasaray called him about me," said Kinkladze.

"They need a playmaker and that's why they want need me. Gala is a great club."

His agent, Ivan Benes, said the Bundesliga could also be an option for Kinkladze.

"Hamburg want very much to take Kinkladze," he said.

Kinkladze admitted earlier this month he is desperate to leave Pride Park.

He said: "I haven't been paid for over three months, there is a serious financial crisis at Derby.

"I hope that I will leave Derby. I've talked with the club directors and they don't mind, I don't want to stay here."
