1. FC Nürnberg is active twice on the transfer market. Jannes Horn strengthened the club from the end of the season, coming on loan from VfL Bochum. Manuel Wintzheimer, on the other hand, leaves Nuremberg and also moves to Braunschweig on loan.
Rumors about Manuel Wintzheimer's upcoming move have been around for a few days. On Saturday, Nuremberg announced that the contract had been completed: the striker was loaned to Eintracht Braunschweig until the end of the season. However, the league competitor at Wintzheimer does not have a purchase option.
In the course of the Wintzheimer farewell, Nuremberg also announced a new signing: Jannes Horn also came on loan from VfL Bochum. The club has no purchase option for the left-back: Horn will return to VfL in the summer." Jannes' impressions from the past few weeks have been very positive. We hope that the loan to Nuremberg will enable him to fully exploit his performance potential through regular appearances and expect him back in good shape in the summer," said Patrick Fabian, sporting director at VfL Bochum.
With the signing of Jannes Horn, Nürnberg closed the bottleneck on the left side of defence. With Tim Handwerker and Erik Wekesser, two players are out in the long term. "Due to the long absences of Tim Handwerker and Erik Wekesser, we saw a need on the left-hand side of defence. With Jannes Horn and Nene Brown we now have two trained left-backs, that was our goal. Since Jannes can also play in central defence, he gives We have more options and it's our logical and right choice," explained sporting director Dieter Hecking. The loan to Nuremberg is therefore a win-win situation for everyone involved. "When the request came from Nuremberg, I didn't have to think long. I already know the people responsible for the sport and some of the players. I want to help the club and the team play a good second half of the season," said the newcomer to Nuremberg.
