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


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.”
