Bayern loans defender Jan Kirchhoff to Schalke
Bayern Munich is sending defender Jan Kirchhoff on loan to
Bundesliga rival Schalke until the end of next season.
Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge says the 22-year-old
Kirchhoff’s move is a good decision for all concerned. Kirchhoff
will reinforce Schalke’s defense and Rummenigge says he will get
playing time that ”was not possible in Munich so far.”
The Bundesliga champions say the deal includes an option for
Kirchhoff to return to Bayern, which he joined from Mainz at the
beginning of the season.
