Samardzic, who has made three Bundesliga appearances for Hertha, said:

"RB Leipzig is a great address for young, hungry players. They have been playing very attractive, offensive footballer for years and therfore fits me perfectly. I'm looking forward to joining the team an will give everything to settle in quickly. I hope we will have a lot to celebrate together in the future."
