Despite being very much on the radar of Domenico Tedesco's coaching regime, 20-year-old attacking midfielder Joscha Wosz and RB Leipzig opted to end their mutual cooperation and terminate the Halle native's contract yesterday. The former German youth international then moved to third division side SC Verl on a free transfer, where he signed a two-year-deal.

Wosz recently returned to the German Red Bulls after a successful loan-out to his hometown club Hallescher FC. The youngster had made three first team appearances for Leipzig under previous head-coach's Julian Nagelsmann and Jesse Marsch. The nephew of former Hertha and Bochum regular Darius Wosz was still regarded as a decent prospect. The move thus came as a surprise.

"Joscha is a player who is fast, compact and very ball-secure. He certainly won't need much of an adjustment period," Verl sporting director tor Sebastian Lange noted in a statement on the club's website, "It will be easy for him to implement our brand of football because he already knows and has internalized a lot of the content [at Leipzig]."

Wosz's agent and father explained the decision to terminate his son's contract as the right move in order to help him develop further. Zbigniew Wosz spoke to club website Relive after the dissolution of the contract was announced.

"There [at Verl] Joscha now gets a little more time to develop," the father noted, "He can gradually get into a rhythm and begin to reach his potential."
