Bayern loan Gnabry to Hoffenheim for 2017-18

Serge Gnabry has joined Hoffenheim on a one-year
loan deal from Bayern Munich, the Bundesliga
champions have confirmed.
The former Arsenal winger, who turned 22 on
Friday, joined Bayern from Werder Bremen last
month for a fee believed to be in the region of
However, he will spend the first season of a three-
year deal on loan at Hoffenheim, who are set to
make their Champions League debut this term.
Gnabry impressed as part of Germany's victorious
team at the European Under-21 Championship and
his arrival offsets Hoffenheim's loss of Niklas Sule
and Sebastian Rudy, both of whom begin their
Bayern careers this season after securing moves
back in January.

"It was the explicit request from Serge to be loaned
out for a year so he could get more experience,"
said Bayern chief executive Karl-Heinz
Rummenigge in a club statement.
"From my perspective, that will be guaranteed to be
at a high level at Hoffenheim."

Bayern bolstered their creative midfield options earlier this
week with a surprise swoop for Real Madrid star James
Rodriguez on an initial two-year loan deal, although
Douglas Costa was allowed to join Juventus on loan.
Gnabry shone in the Bundesliga for Bremen last season,
scoring 11 goals in 27 appearances.
