Hertha updates: Getafe prepared to pay €4 million for Alderete, Dardai and Niederlechner wish to stay

Journalist Steffen Rohr of Germany's Kicker Magazine reports that Hertha BSC have reached an agreement with Getafe FC for the permanent transfer of Paraguayan defender Omar Alderete. 

Rohr also cites his own sources to claim that Florian Niederlechner and Marton Dardai are prepared to remain with the club as they move to the second division next season.
A few days after netting €2.5 million for "problem child" Santiago Ascacibar, relegated Hertha BSC may be set to earn up to €4 million for another want-away player who caused them constant headaches. Steffen Rohr of Germany's Kicker Magazine reports that La Liga relegation candidates Getafe FC are set to pay for the 26-year-old irrespective of what Spanish flight they play in next season.

In a separate article appearing on the magazine's website, Rohr claims that all the club's current players have contracts that remain valid for the 2. Bundesliga. While other Bundesliga sides are interested in courting the likes of Maximilian Mittelstädt and Jessic Ngankam, there are already some commitments from players happy to help the club out in the second division.

Rohr specifically cites the cases of striker Florian Niederlechner and Marton Dardai. Niederlechner seems to have no problem returning to the second flight, where he once enjoyed a successful season with Freiburg whilst on loan from Mainz. Dardai, the son of the club's current trainer, also wishes to stay close to home despite previous interest from other sides.
