Former Germany international Tim Borowski has confirmed that he is in discussions with Werder Bremen about joining the club's backroom staff.
The 32-year-old is currently without a club after his contract with Thomas Schaaf's side expired at the end of the previous campaign, while his future on the pitch has been put thrown into doubt, having struggled with injury in recent years.
"There are advanced talks with Werder Bremen," Borowski told Goal.com. "The club's ideas and my own fit together.
"A decision has not been made yet. I have several options. Until the end of the summer I want to have some clarity."
It is understood, however, that Borowski could take up an executive role at Bremen rather than a coaching position in the club's first or reserve team.
The 33-cap German broke into Bremen's first team in 2000 and has spent the entirety of his career at the Weserstadion, with the exception of the 2008-09 career, when he donned Bayern Munich's shirt.
