U21 national player Noah Katterbach switched to FC Basel on loan from 1. FC Köln before the season. At the traditional Swiss club, however, the full-back does not get the chance as hoped. Therefore, a premature termination of the loan is imminent. In the second half of the season, Katterbach is to be loaned out to Hamburger SV.
The Cologne announced on Saturday. Katterbach will initially start training with HSV with a guest player permit. Formally, the deal should be completed in the coming week.
The 21-year-old native has only played six out of a possible 16 games in Basel. In the second half of the season, the prospects for the German U21 international didn’t look too good either. At HSV he is to replace Tim Leibold, who switched to Kansas City in the MLS a few days ago.
Katterbach has played 40 Bundesliga games for FC so far. In the 2019/20 and 2020/21 seasons he was part of the extended permanent staff, but under Steffen Baumgart he increasingly fell behind. His contract runs until June 2024.
