Borussia have agreed to send Jordan Beyer on loan to German second division side Hamburger SV until the end of the season.
The 19-year-old defender has already travelled to join up with his new teammates at their winter training camp in Portugal and completed his first training session today. “Jordan is a young player from our academy, who we believe will become a key part of our team over the next few years. Nevertheless, we have come to the mutual decision to send him out on loan to HSV for a few months so that he can get the match practice he needs. He’s in good hands there with Dieter Hecking and we’ve given him the thumbs up so that he can get as much playing time as possible,” Borussia’s sporting director Max Eberl said about the transfer.
The defender, who previously used to sit in the stands at the BORUSSIA-PARK as a fan, joined the club from Fortuna Düsseldorf back in 2015 and has since risen up through the ranks at the academy. He completed his first training session with the senior team as a 17-year-old back in 2017 and racked up a number of friendly appearances throughout the following winter break. He made the senior squad twice in the 2017/18 season, however was still yet to earn his first professional appearance for the club. Beyer then went on to make his Bundesliga debut for his boyhood club on the opening day of the 2018/19 season under Borussia’s coach at the time, Dieter Hecking. This came just a few days after he made his first professional start for the club in the first round of the DFB Pokal against BSC Hastedt. Beyer went on to make a total of eight Bundesliga appearances throughout the course of the season, making the squad on five further occasions. The 19-year-old has made three Bundesliga appearances for the Foals so far this season, as well as earning a start in the second round of the DFB Pokal against Borussia Dortmund. His current contract at Borussia runs until June 2022.
