Some reports indicated that Berlin's Köpenick club neared an outright purchase of Leon Dajaku from the Bayern reserve squad. After the teenager cleared his medical on Sunday, the fifth-place German Bundesliga side that the deal for the Kosovar would be a six-month loan with a purchase option.

"I'm convinced that the move to Berlin is the right step for me," Dajaku said in a statement, "At Union I'll have the opportunity to get a toehold in the Bundesliga and prove myself at the highest level. The team has thus far played an outstanding season thus far and I'm excited to become a part of it."

Dajaku can be used very flexibly in offense, playing on both wings and also working as a holding midfielder. Since Bayern snatched him up from VfB Stuttgart to play with their reserves in 2019, his market value has increased from €300,000 to €2.3 million. He remains under contract with the Bavarians until 2023.
