RB Leipzig's appointment of Jesse Marsch as new coach could lead to Hwang Hee-chan staying at Red Bull Arena despite speculation linking him with a move away from the club.

Hwang Hee-chan has been heavily linked with a move away from RB Leipzig after a disappointing first season in Germany.


However, following the appointment of Jesse Marsch, his former coach at RB Salzburg, it now looks like the forward will stay beyond the summer after all, according to Kicker.

"The fact that Jesse Marsch knows me well is certainly not a disadvantage," Hwang told the German football magazine.

"We'll see how he and the sporting management plan."

The 25-year-old has scored three goals and made two assists in 22 games for RB Leipzig this season.
