Gladbach loan Drmic to Hamburg

Borussia MG striker Josip Drmic has joined Bundesliga rivals Hamburg on loan until the end of the season in the hope of securing more game time.

The off-season signing from Bayer Leverkusen has struggled to establish himself at Borussia-Park, with the majority of his 19 appearances coming from the bench.

HSV head coach Bruno Labbadia has offered Drmic a lifeline by bringing the Switzerland international to the Volksparkstadion for the remainder of the campaign.

The 23-year-old striker is keen to make an impact for Die Rothosen as he looks to cement a place in the Swiss squad for Euro 2016.

“For me it’s a new challenge,” Drmic told his new club’s official website upon signing the loan deal.

“I’m looking forward to playing again and I hope to make a difference as soon as possible. I’m highly motivated and ready for the job ahead at HSV.”
