FC Union Berlin confirmed Keita Endo's move to Eintracht Braunschweig would be a one-year-loan on Tuesday evening.
In a statement accompanying the announcement, FCU sporting director Oliver Ruhnert made clear that the Köpenick side were not giving up on the player. The 24-year-old, for whom die Eisernen shelled out a reported €900,000 in early 2021, will be due back in the capital city after the season.
"Keita has already proven that he has what it takes to be a Bundesliga player," Ruhnert noted in a statement, "With the loan, he has the chance to get more playing time at a good level and to develop even further."
