Hoffenheim coach André Breitenreiter has confirmed that Stefan Posch is close to leaving the club amid reports linking the defender with a move to Bologna.

A loan deal with either an option to buy or an obligation to buy is said to be in the offing and imminent.

"At the moment Stefan Posch is not here, he is on his way to another club. It's very likely that a transfer will be announced today," Breitenreiter told reporters at a press conference today.

Meanwhile, Breitenreiter doesn't expect anything to happen on the arrival side.

"You should never say never in football, no one knows what will happen by 6 pm. But I was happy with the squad six weeks ago, and I am today. I don't think anything will happen in terms of arrivals. With departures, one or two personnel issues are still open," he said.
