Twenty-five-year-old Congolese striker Silveré Ganvoula M'bossy completed a 13-goal-haul for VfL Bochum during the 2019/20 campaign in the 2. Bundesliga. During the club's promotion campaign last year, however, Ganvoula had already slid into a substitute's role. 

The former Anderlecht, Westerlo, and KV Mechelen forward--signed by the 1848ers after a successful loan spell in the 2018/19 season--did not get many opportunities to feature for Bochum this season, not even after lead-striker Simon Zoller succumbed to injury early last autumn. 

Bochum confirmed a six-month-loan out for the player on Tuesday, seemingly suggesting that they are satisfied with the current striking options of Sebastian Polter and the newly-acquired Jürgen Locadia. The short-term-loan nevertheless doesn't include a purchase clause, meaning the club doesn't wish to give up on him just yet.

"We will monitor his development from a league he's familiar with," VfL manager Sebastian Schindzielorz said in a statement, "he'll have the opportunity to  gain playing experience and prove himself at a high level." 

Ganvoula made just nine appearances, all in relief, this season.
