Bayern agrees to deal with Zenit's Tymoshchuk

Tue 3rd, February 2009

Munich, Germany (Sports Network) - Bayern Munich has agreed to a deal to sign Zenit St. Peterburg midfielder Anatoliy Tymoshchuk, according to Bayern general manager Uli Hoeness.

Tymoshchuk, a Ukraine international, has a been a target for Bayern Munich for months, but the deal was just agreed to Monday. Tymoshchuk could join Bayern as soon as April, but Hoeness expected the player to arrive in July.

The Russian season runs from March to December and transfer rules are different than in the rest of Europe.

"We're reached an agreement with the player, but we've not settled on a date with St. Petersburg," Hoeness said on the club's website. "There are a few question marks, such as whether he can or indeed must come to us in April, or not until 1 July."

Although Tymoshchuk is likely a replacement for current captain Mark van Bommel in defensive midfield, Hoeness hopes to retain the Dutch international for at least one more season.

"I personally continue to believe we'll succeed in keeping Mark here in Munich. That's what we've always been aiming for, and I've heard no suggestion it's not possible," Hoeness said.

Van Bommel's contract runs out at the end of the season, but Bayern has already offered him a one-year extension.

If "he opts to stay at Bayern, we'll be very pleased," Hoeness said.
