The 21-year-old Raitala arrived at Hoffenheim in August 2009 and has since played in two Bundesliga games. "We see a lot of potential in Jukka, but feel it's best for him to get some competitive match practice in at Paderborn - something that will also aid his development as a football player", said manager Ernst Tanner. Raitala's contract in Kraichgau runs until 2014.
Jukka Raitala will be pulling on the shirt of SC Paderborn this season. The Finnish U21 international has been loaned out to the second division club for the rest of the campaign.
