Arne Maier has extended his contract with Hertha BSC and joined Arminia Bielefeld on loan until the end of the season.


"Arne approached us with the desire to get more playing time elsewhere within the Bundesliga. We wish him to develop further in a new environment and are looking forward to welcoming him back to Berlin in the summer," said Hertha boss Michael Preetz.

Maier commented:

"I'm very pleased that I have been able to extend my contract with Hertha BSC and would now like to get match practice in Bielefeld. I'm looking forward to the task at Arminia, where I can gain a lot of experience."

Maier's new deal with Hertha expires in 2023, according to Kicker, who claims the 21-year-old turned down interest from Rangers and Sampdoria to join the newly-promoted Bundesliga side.
