Loan Departures

Die Roten also had to plan loan moves for younger players to continue their development. Lars Lukas Mai was the first player to go out on loan this summer. The young German defender joined Darmstadt on a season long. Mai made his debut for the senior team two years ago, but he couldn’t get playing time in the last two seasons. A loan move will help the 20-year-old defender to come back stronger and fight for a place in the first team.

Sarpreet Singh made his debut for Die Roten last season. With so many forwards in the first team, Singh would have found it difficult to play in the first team this campaign. Along with Christian Fruchtl, Singh joined FC Nurnberg on a season-long loan deal.

Mickael Cuisance was close to joining Leeds United on a permanent deal in September. However, that move collapsed at the last moment. The French midfielder eventually got a deadline day move to Marseille. Cuisance will be spending next year in Ligue 1. Marseille reportedly has an option to sign him permanently.

On Tuesday, the Dutch transfer window was open, so Adrian Fein was able to complete a loan transfer to PSV Eindhoven. The German midfielder was expected to get chances in the first team this season, but the arrival of Roca meant that Fein had to go out on loan again. The Dutch club has the option to sign Fein permanently next summer.
