The 23-year-old Austrian should gain more game practice with the Bundesliga club in his home country, which also secured a purchase option.

Celic, whose contract with SV Darmstadt 98 is valid until 2024, switched from WSG Tirol to Hessen in the summer of 2021 and only made 15 competitive appearances in fourth place in the previous season.

“Nemanja Celic was not able to gain the match practice that he wanted in the past season, which is why he approached us with the desire for a change,” said Darmstadt’s sporting director Carsten Wehlmann (49) on Monday.

“We also see a loan as a sensible solution so that he can get back into the rhythm of the game through regular appearances,” Wehlmann continued.
