Recently returned from a relatively successful loan stint with FC Nordsjælland in his native Denmark, VfB Stuttgart striker Wahid Faghir is now headed to the 2. Bundesliga's "Saarland Sensation". The 19-year-old prospect will spend the season on loan with SV Elversberg 07. Both clubs confirmed the arrangement on Wednesday morning.

With an estimated market worth of €2.5 million, Faghir is by far the most valuable player on the Elversberg roster and indeed the highest value acquisition in the club's history. The teenager scored four goals in 16 appearances during his recent loan stint in the Danish Superliga. He's netted one goal in six Budnesliga appearances with his parent club.

"Wahid Faghir is a very complete striker with physicality, quality, and finishing strength," SVE sporting director Ole Book noted in a club statement, "He's an asset for us. will strengthen our offensive game with his exceptional skills, and we are looking forward to the season with him."

The talent remains under contract with Stuttgart - who once paid €3.5 million for him - through 2026. VfB sporting director Fabian Wohlgemuth openly noted that he was shopping Faghir for a loan two days ago. The club executive emphasized that Stuttgart hoped that the loan would further Faghir's development. The player himself also issued a statement in which he said he was "convinced" that he could find his stride again.

"Playing practice comes first when it comes to taking the next step in development as a young player," Wohlgemuth said, "In Elversberg, Wahid will find exactly the right opportunity to prove himself. He can take responsibility and will be challenged there to a healthy degree. From that point-of-view, this move is logical and makes sense. We will stay in touch and wish him all the best and much success for the upcoming season."
