However, after the debacle last season, Leverkusen instead opted for the safe option and signed Andrey Lunev, formerly of Zenit, as a recognized deputy to the Finnish international Hradecky. Grill was hence relegated to the stands, and at his age game time will be vital for his development, which has slowed down a bit ever since his move from 1. FC Kaiserslautern to the BayArena in June 2020.
Brann will certainly be a worthy solution to this problem. The first division club sit at the bottom of the table, three points away from the relegation playoff place. There are still 13 games to go before the season ends with the calendar year in December, and Grill can certainly gain a lot of experience with this short term move.
