Hoffenheim winger Fabian Johnson may be changing addresses this summer, but he will not be leaving the German Bundesliga.
Johnson is set to sign with Borussia Moenchengladbach as a free agent during the upcoming summer transfer window, according to a report from German outlet Kicker. It was confirmed early last week that Johnson would be leaving Hoffenheim after his contract expires at season’s end and he has previously been linked with a move to Moenchengladbach, which have formerly employed U.S. Men’s National Team players Michael Bradley and Kasey Keller.
The versatile Johnson, 26, has made nine starts in 13 appearances for Hoffenheim this season. The club, who he has been with since the 2011-12 season, is currently in 11th place in the Bundesliga.
By contrast, Moenchengladbach currently sit in fifth place and occupy a Europa League spot. They are four points shy of the Bundesliga’s UEFA Champions League qualifiers position.
What do you think of Johnson reportedly moving to Hoffenheim? Like the move? Wishing he would have tried his luck in a different league?
