thumbnail Hello,

The player's representative has revealed that his client will not extend his stay at the Allianz Arena, amid interest from Nurnberg and Hoffenheim

Takashi Usami's working relationship with Bayern Munich will end this summer, his agent has confirmed.

The Japan international moved to Germany last summer on loan from Gamba Osaka, but has played just 50 minutes in all competitions. And amid interest from other clubs, he will seek a move elsewhere during the summer transfer window.

"At Bayern we will go no further," agent Ludwig Kogl told Kicker.

The decision was made "as of today," he confirmed to TZ.

"Usami does not depend on Bayern in order to stay in Europe," Kogl added. "There are interested parties in the Bundesliga and in Europe."

Bundesliga clubs Hoffenheim and Nurnberg are reportedly interested in Usami. However, FCN boss Martin Bader revealed that the player's buy-out clause, which due to fluctuation between Euro and Yen values has risen to €3 million, is 'unaffordable.'

Bayern were previously reported to be willing to sign the 19-year-old attacker and immediately loan him out, but the player turned down that motion.

Largely ignored as an option for the first team, Usami has earned 14 appearances for the Bayern reserves in the Regionalliga Sud, scoring six goals.
