Dutch center-halve Justin Hoogma never got a chance to get going with loan-club SpVgg Greuther Fürth this season. After three starts in the opening three rounds, an injury and a bout with COVID kept him out of Stefan Leitl's XI. He only appeared once in Leitl's bench squad after the third round. 

"Justin wants to play regularly and that's a legitimate wish," Leitl noted at his Friday presser, "Unfortunately, we can't give him that regularity with Fürth." 

"Like all us, he had a problematic start," Leitl added, "Then came a serious injury and then Corona on top of that. He never got a chance to get off the ground." 

Leitl noted that Hoogma was "in negotiations with another club", suggesting that parent club TSG 1899 Hoffenheim is preparing to loan the 23-year-old out as soon as the existing loan arrangement with Fürth is terminated. 

Hoogma previously spent time with FC St. Pauli and FC Utrecht on loan from the Sinsheimers.
