Midfielder returns from loan to parent club in Berlin
Eduard Löwen has approached FC Augsburg with a request to end his loan with the club, just hours before the transfer deadline. The midfielder had originally agreed to spend the 2020/21 season on loan with FCA, with the deal running until next summer. Augsburg have agreed to grant the 23-year-old’s wish, and Löwen will now return to Berlin to join up with his parent club, Hertha BSC, with immediate effect.
“The Hertha management approached me and told me that they would like to take me back immediately. Having thought this over, I’ve decided that I want to return to the club where I'm under contract for a longer period of time in order to take the opportunity there. I would like to thank FC Augsburg for making this possible,” said Eduard Löwen on the last-minute switch.
“After Eduard Löwen came to us with the request, we communicated with the player and with Hertha BSC in order to find a solution that works for everyone. Even though Eduard played an important role in the second half of last season and put in some good performances, we have enough quality in midfield that we are in a good position despite his departure. We have some promising youth talent that we trust will develop into future players in this position. For this reason, we were happy to comply with Eduard’s request,” said Stefan Reuter, FCA’s sporting director.
Alongside Eduard Löwen, Romario Roesch will also not be appearing in the red shirt of FC Augsburg in the future. The youngster, who last trained with the U23s and previously spent time on loan with Roda Kerkrade in the Dutch second division, has joined 1. FSV Mainz 05 U23s.
