Both clubs involved have confirmed Scottish striker Oliver Burke's short-term loan out.

"After [his early season] contributions to the team, he [Burke] had expectations to play more," SV licensing director Clemens Fritz told Kicker Magazine's Tim Lüddecke, "And you could tell that he did. That's why we've now found a good solution for everyone involved."
"It's not that we have written him off," Fritz insisted, "we still see enormous potential in him. We hope that he can further develop with more playing time."
Burke scored two goals whilst on loan at Millwall from Sheffield United last spring. The Scot also netted two Bundesliga goals for his German outfit this year.

"Es hat sich für Oliver kurzfristig die Möglichkeit ergeben, bei einem anderen Club mehr Spielzeit zu bekommen. Wir sehen weiterhin großes Potential in ihm und hoffen, dass er das durch mehr Einsätze zur Entfaltung bringen kann.“ #Werder | #Burke https://t.co/qVeZmeBa8s
