Werder Bremen Rule Out Move For Basel's Behrang Safari

Klaus Allofs has moved to quell speculation that Werder Bremen are interested in Basel left-back Behrang Safari.
Despite recent speculation to the contrary, it appears that Werder Bremen will not be making a move for Basel left-back Behrang Safari after all.

"We will not be doing anything [regarding Safari]," Werder manager Klaus Allofs is quoted as saying by SPOX.

Allofs did acknowledge to having watched the player, who is also attracting interest from Borussia Dortmund and Schalke, but stated that he was not the right solution to Bremen's problems at left-back.

Safari, who is 25, has 17 caps for the Swedish national team and can also operate on the left side of midfield.
