Kleinheisler joins Darmstadt 98 on loan

Werder Bremen have announced that midfielder Laszlo Kleinheisler has joined Darmstadt 98 on a one-year loan deal ahead of the 2016/17 Bundesliga campaign.

The 22-year-old joined the Bundesliga outfit in January 2016 from Videoton FC and wnet on to make seven appearances in all competitions.

Bremen sporting director Frank Baumann confirmed the move via the club's official website and stated that he expected the defensive midfielder to get regular game-time at Norbert Meier's side.

"He had a great European Championship and is developing well but there is a lot of competition for his spot and we can’t guarantee him regular football this season," he told the club's website.

"He will get a lot of minutes at Darmstadt and get to play at a high level," Baumann concluded.
