Christoph Moritz joins Darmstadt 98 on loan

The midfielder will spend the rest of the season on loan at the Lilies. 

Hamburger SV have loaned midfielder Christoph Moritz to fellow 2. Bundesliga side SV Darmstadt 92 until the end of the season. The 29-year-old joined the club last summer from 1. FC Kaiserslautern and made 11 appearances for Die Rothosen this season. "Chris asked us if he could leave to get more game time. We granted this wish in the form of a loan deal and wish him all the best and lots of game time in Darmstadt," explained HSV sporting director Ralph Becker. The Lilies, who are currently 13th in the league, become Moritz’s fifth club after FC Schalke 04 (2009-13), 1. FSV Mainz (2013-2016), 1. FC Kaiserslautern (2016-18) and Hamburger SV (2018). His contract runs until summer 2020.
