Pekturk and Mikkelsen leave

Greuther Furth have announced the exit of Tayfun Pekturk and
Tobias Mikkelsen to Turkey and Norway respectively.

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.

But Greuther Furth general manager Rouven Schroder admits that
the Denmark international winger struggled to make an impact.

“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.”
