Dudek wants to leave Real to claim Poland place

MADRID, Dec 5 (Reuters) - Goalkeeper Jerzy Dudek wants to leave Real Madrid in the January transfer window in search of regular first team action for the rest of the season so he can win a place in the Polish national team for Euro 2008.

'I've got a three-year contract with Real Madrid but I want to look at the possibility of leaving,' the 34-year-old told Spanish sports daily Marca on Wednesday.

'Poland have qualified for the European championship for the first time and I have received an important call from the coach Leo Beenhakker who told me that if I played regularly I would be his keeper at Euro 2008.

'I want to play at the European championship because it will be a historic moment for our country and I haven't played at all in Madrid. I think the best thing now is that we sit down and talk.'

Dudek joined Real as a free agent from Liverpool in the close season to provide cover for first-choice keeper Iker Casillas but he has yet to play for the club in either the Primera Liga or the Champions League.

'I would like to leave,' Dudek added.

'If I were 26 I would never leave Real Madrid even if I was second choice, but things have changed with the call from Poland. I'm 34 and they have given me hope of playing in an important tournament.

'I know I will only have a chance if I play regularly in the next few months. Real have the final word... but I want to be totally honest with them about this.'

Poland have been drawn alongside Germany, Croatia and joint hosts Austria in Group B of Euro 2008.
