Drmic leaves Gladbach to join Hamburg on loan

Hamburger SV have snapped up Josip Drmic on loan from Borussia Mönchengladbach on transfer deadline day in a bid to boost their firepower.

A promising goalgetter at 1. FC Nürnberg, Drmic has seen his career stall since moving to Bayer 04 Leverkusen in 2014 and then to BORUSSIA-PARK last summer.

The striker made 13 Bundesliga appearances for Gladbach this season, but only four of them were starts and he scored just a single top-flight goal for the Foals. He now hopes the move north will get him back on track.

"Obviously I'm happy that things have worked out and that I'm here. I'm extremely motivated and prepared for the task in hand," said the 23-year-old, who has scored 24 goals in 71 Bundesliga career appearances so far.
