"With the signing of Jonas Omlin, we have found a very good solution from our perspective" Gladbach's sporting director Roland Virkus noted in a statement "He is a very reliable goalkeeper with a very vibrant game, strong on the line and also with the ball at his feet."
Omlin himself had long expressed the hope to play in one of the top four leagues whilst playing for former club FC Basel and after moving to Montpellier last summer. The Sarnen-native kept three clean sheets La Paillade in Ligue 1 this season. He kept all balls out of the back of the net a further nine times in Ligue 1 whilst playing on loan for Le Mont during the 2021/22 campaign.
