The Chemitz native of Nigerian descent has been with Hertha through all manners of ups and downs. One of the players featured in the award-winning documentary "Schwarze Adler" about Black players representing Germany, Torunarigha has continued to represent Germany at the youth and Olympic level despite suffering multiple cases of racial abuse.
"I'm sure that this change of scenery will be good for his development and that he will return to us stronger," sporting CEO Fredi Bobic noted in a statement, "He let us know that he wanted to gain experience outside of Hertha and we obliged."
The loan contains no purchase option. Torunarigha remains under contract with the capital city side through the end of the 2022/23 campaign.
