- Kagawa on loan to Bordeaux?
Shinji Kagawa has not gotten many chances since Lucien Favre has arrived and it does not seem to change in the near future. BVB are ready to let the Japanese midfielder go and have struck a deal with French club Girondins Bordeaux according to Eric Barrère, a journalist for BeinSport. It would not be a permanent move but just a loan until the end of the season, Kagawa himself seems to prefer a move to Spain.
Il existe un Accord de principe entre @girondins et @BVB pour le prêt de 6 mois de @S_Kagawa0317 dans le rôle du Milieu axial ciblé par le staff en recherche de temps de jeu à #Dortmund. Reste à convaincre le joueur qui rêve d’Espagne. #ShinjiKagawa #Japon— Eric Barrère (@ebarrere70) January 13, 2019
Michael Zorc has denied knowing about such an agreement with Bordeaux to Ruhr Nachrichten saying:
“I know nothing about that.”
Jakub “Kuba” Blaszczykowski has returned to his childhood club Wisla Krakow after terminating his contract with VfL Wolfsburg. Wisla Krakow find themselves in financial trouble and are on the verge of losing their licence which would see them being automatically relegated to the third league. In order to avoid this Kuba has not only agreed to play for the club without pay, he will also loan 310.000€ to the club.
Blaszczykowski played from 2007 until 2015 with the black and yellows and appeared in 253 games (32 goals, 52 assists). He won two Bundesliga titles and one DFB Cup with Borussia Dortmund.
