Borussia Mönchengladbach's Andreas Poulsen says he could imagine going out on loan in January in the search for more first-team action.

"We have talked about that. It has to be the right move, and I won't just do it for the sake of it. But I'm definitely open to a move in the winter if possible. It's hard to say where I could go, though, because it's also about what's possible," Poulsen told Danish football news outlet Bold.dk.

The left-back, who made one appearance for Gladbach during the 2018/19 campaign, was hoping for more playing time this season, but has seen competition for places increase with the summer arrival of Ramy Bensebaini from Stade Rennais.

"I can kind of understand it – and kind of not. I obviously hoped that I was going to be the main back-up or compete to start, but then they signed him," Poulsen said and added:

"He's capable of playing as a centre-back as well, so I don't know what the plan is. But I thought it was a bit strange and also talked to the club about it. They said signing him was a good opportunity and that they would look at sending me out to find playing time, so I could get ready for next season."

Gladbach paid €4,5 million to sign the 20-year-old from Danish side FC Midtjylland in 2018.l
