Germany’s excellent performance in the World Cup’s Group stage brought many German fans and online bookies alike to a high-caliber celebration. The success should translate well into the domestic league, particularly in Bundesliga. A healthy transfer market is currently guiding the top-flight football to a potentially productive season post-summer. Here are some of the latest developments in the league:


  • In spite of allegations of a FIFA rule breach as well as the co-ownership issue between Torino and Juventus remaining unresolved, Ciro Immobile has sealed a deal with Borrussia Dortmund and bid adieu to Il Toro. The striker was Serie A’s top scorer last season and was deservedly awarded with the Golden Boot accolade.
  • Two players from relegated Nurnberg were given a chance to remain in the German top-flight league with two Bundesliga clubs offering them a deal. Daniel Ginczek has been invited by Stuttgart while United States international Timothy Chandler would be joining Eintracht Frankfurt.
  • Hannover 96 have completed the signing of Miiko Albornoz from Allsvenskan champions Malmo. The talented full-back was impressive in Sweden and was rewarded with a spot in Chile’s squad for the World Cup in Brazil.
  • Fulham center-back John Heitinga moves to Hertha Berlin on a free transfer. The 30-year-old player was the only one to score a goal for his side in their battle against Chelsea last March.
  • Former Real Madrid and Spain Under-21 striker Joselu is now part of Hannover 96, creating a plausible powerhouse attack for the side.
  • South Korean left-back Kim Jin-su joins TSG 1899 Hoffenheim. The 22-year-old will be making a spell in Bundesliga after exiting from the Japanese club Albirex Niigata. He has signed a four-year deal with Markus Gisdol’s team.
