Tobias Mikkelsen: Has left Greuther Furth for Rosenborg

Pekturk joined the club from Eintracht Trier in 2010 but the 24-year-old midfielder has moved on to join Istanbul BB in the Turkish top flight.

And the exit of 25-year-old Mikkelsen to Rosenborg comes just six months after he joined the club from Danish champions Nordsjaelland.

"Unfortunately Tobias has been unable to breakthrough in the Bundesliga," he told Deutsche Presseagentur.

"He did not make the development and progress we had hoped he would. It was not a successful spell for him or for us."

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
