Hoffenheim have a little more time to finalize a loan-out for Samassekou as the transfer window in Spain closes six hours later than in Germany. The main point of contention remains the player's salary. A reported €2.7 million annual stipend would have to be re-negotiated before any transaction is sealed. Samassekou's current TSG deal runs through 2025.
