Klose open to move abroad

Germany and Bayern Munich striker Miroslav Klose said today he is hoping the Bundesliga champions will extend his contract but did not rule out a move abroad to further his experience.

The Polish-born star, 32, whose contract with Bayern runs out at the end of the season, told sport magazine Kicker: "My first point of contact is Bayern Munich. But I am open to anything and could seriously imagine a move within the Bundesliga or overseas," he said.

Klose has scored 58 goals in 105 appearances for Germany and said his choice of club would depend on his international prospects. He said he wanted "to continue to play for a good club because I want to go to the European Championships in 2012" in Ukraine and his native Poland.

Klose added it was "not realistic" to expect runaway Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund to slip up and allow Bayern, 14 points behind, to claim a 23rd title. "We are aiming for second place," he said.
