Hamburg discuss Bruma loan

The 19-year-old, who made his first-team debut in the Blues’ 5-0

win over Blackburn in 2009, joined Leicester City on loan this

year. And Arnesen – who has experience of the Dutch international

from his time as sporting director at Stamford Bridge – is eager to

sign the youngster for two seasons. Arnesen told the club’s

official website: “Jeffrey Buma is on duty with the Netherlands

actually. Afterwards we will meet and talk about it. We will look

each other straight in the eye. “We will decide what is best for

Jeffrey Bruma and Hamburger SV.” Meanwhile, Arnesen has rejected

reports Ivory Coast International Guy Demel will be staying on at

the club, announcing that the former Arsenal player would be

allowed to leave if the offer is right. The 29-year old is

contracted to the club for two more seasons, until June 2013, but

was heavily criticised for his performance by coach Michael Oenning

at the end of 2010/11. However, Arnesen remains insistent Demel

will be given respect while at the Imtech Arena. Arnesen added:

“Guy Demel is under contract with Hamburger SV for six years

overall. He deserves to be fully respected. “This is what I am

doing, I respect his wish to come out for another club and learn

living at a new club as well. He told me that in a personal talk.

Still we are unable to let him leave on a Bosman as he would like

to.” Hamburg, who will be looking to improve on this season’s

eighth-placed finish, have already signed another former Chelsea

player Michael Mancienne.
