Gimber moving on loan to Sandhausen

TSG 1899 Hoffenheim are sending Benedikt Gimber out on loan to SV Sandhausen. The 19-year-old defender is moving to the neighbouring second-division side until 30th June 2017.

The current captain of Germany U19s, along with TSG’s Phillip Ochs, was called up to Guido Streichsbier’s preliminary squad for the upcoming European Championship and has been at TSG for seven years (U13s). The Buchen-born player made the step up to the first team in summer 2015 and was previously awarded the Fritz Walter medal after he helped Hoffenheim win the German U19s Championship when he was still an U17s player.

“It is enormously important that a talented and physically strong player like Benedikt is now able to develop further through game time in professional football, said Alexander Rosen, director of first-team football at TSG.” Therefore, the loan to SV Sandhausen offers “the right framework and environment,” added Rosen.

Gimber is under contract in Hoffenheim until 30th June 2019. He has nine international caps for Germany U19s, with whom he’ll take part in the European Championship from 11th June in Baden-Württemberg. The final of the tournament will take place on the 24th July in the WIRSOL Rhein-Neckar-Arena in Sinsheim.
