Samaras exit talk grows

03 Jul 2007 - 12:53:25

Manchester City striker Georgios Samaras is being linked with a move to French side Rennes after enduring a difficult 18 months at Eastlands.

Former City boss Stuart Pearce bought the Greece international from Heerenveen in a £6million deal in January 2006 but he has flattered to deceive during his time in England.

The 22-year-old forward has found the net only eight times in 50 Premiership appearances for City, who now appear willing to cut their losses on the player.

Rennes are believed to have offered £2million for Samaras, while Heerenveen are also reported to be interested in bringing the player back to Dutch football.

Greek side Olympiakos and Spanish club Real Betis have also expressed an interest in Samaras.

If Samaras does leave City, he will be the seventh player to exit the club since the end of last season, following in the footsteps of Stephen Jordan, Djamel Abdoun, DaMarcus Beasley, Trevor Sinclair, Sylvain Distin and Joey Barton.
