Kicker: Chris Richards set to head back to Hoffenheim on loan

Hoffenheim are closing in on a new loan deal for Bayern München's Chris Richards.
Chris Richards is expected to join Hoffenheim on loan from Bayern München before tonight's transfer deadline.

According to Kicker, a switch to Hoffenheim is on the cards for the U.S. international, who spent the second half of last season on loan at the club.

The U.S. international is hoping to get more playing time at Rhein-Neckar Arena after having played just two minutes of Bundesliga football under new Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann.

The versatile defender still has two years left on his contract with the German champions.
