German footballing magazine Kicker reports that Union Berlin are set to loan-out one of their expensive summer purchases.
Arriving in the German capital during the offseason for a fee of €2.5 million, Polish left-back Tymoteusz Puchacz is apparently set to leave the Bundesrepublik without having played a single league match for his German club. Germany's preeminent footballing publication reports that the Köpenickers are preparing to loan the 22-year-old out to Tranbszonspor for the remainder of the season.
Puchacz has made five appearances for die Eisernen (one start) in the UEFA Europa Conference League group stages. The club is apparently nevertheless satisfied with the work that German football veterans Niko Gießelmann and Bastian Oczipka have put in at the youngster's position.
Gießelmann actually had to be subbed off injured in Saturday's 2-2 draw with Leverkusen and spent the night in Berlin's Charité hospital for observations. Kicker reports that the Puchacz is already near completion with the youngster already in Turkey for a medical.
