23 year old midfielder Moritz Leitner seems to be on his way out of Signal Iduna Park. Mo did not travel today with the team to Switzerland for their preseason training camp . Reports say the team has released him to look for a new team.

Mo has had trouble finding playing time for BVB since he joined the club in 2011. At the time a very young player getting playing time with the Bundesliga champions was very impressive. Unfortunately he hasn’t grown very much at BVB or at Stuttgart where he was loaned for two years.

With the amount of midfield depth we have now, he would probably almost never play for us, so it’s good BVB is letting him look elsewhere. We’ll probably let him go for very cheap like Kuba, just to let him go where he's wanted. Mo is still only 23 so he has time to become a quality player. Good luck finding a team Mo!
