thumbnail Hello,

The 30-year-old goalkeeper will not renew his contract and will leave the Weserstadion this summer on a free transfer, but has yet to reveal where he will play next season

Tim Wiese has revealed that he will leave Werder Bremen this summer on a free transfer.

Having played at the Weserstadion since 2005, the Germany international is prepared to take the next step in his career. And with his contract set to expire in June, he will be free to accept an offer from any club from July 1.

"I've had seven great years at Werder. I've played in the Champions League five times and won the DFB-Pokal. It was a great time, with a great coach and great fans," he told Bild. "But now I need a new challenge."

The 30-year-old currently earns €2.8 million per year, and with what will likely be the last big contract of his career, is hoping for more of a pay rise than Bremen were willing to offer.

"Of course, it's also about money. As a footballer, your time is limited," he said.

It is currently unclear where Wiese will play next season. Agent Roger Wittmann has received offers both from Germany and abroad, but the player is yet to choose a destination. However, it is reported that he will make a decision before Euro 2012.
