Hamburg (AFP) – Sonny Kittel remains with second-division soccer team Hamburg SV. The 29-year-old midfielder wanted to move to the USA and was negotiating with DC United Washington of Major League Soccer.
But the move did not come for “various reasons,” HSV announced on Wednesday. Since Kittel’s contract with the Hanseatic League is still valid until June 30, 2023, he will begin summer preparations on Wednesday (today), according to the club’s announcement.
“We are happy to shift around a potential transfer, as we have never wanted to pre-emptively hand Sony anyway. With his qualities, he can make a crucial contribution to our goals next season, which is why we are very pleased with that. Keep working,” CEO Jonas Boldt said. Together on both sides motivated.”
“After the ups and downs of the past few days, I am delighted that the final decision has been made, it gives everyone a plan to be safe. I am looking forward now and happy to be back on the field with the players. In his 104 official matches with HSV so far,” said Keitel. He was directly involved in 63 goals.
