Reto Ziegler has joined Hamburg on loan.
The Swiss international midfielder made great progress last season following his signing from Grasshoppers and made 31 first team appearances - scoring one goal.
Opportunities have been limited for the 19-year-old so far this season and he now heads to Germany to further his experience. Martin Jol has no doubts that Reto is still a player for our future.
"Reto is a very big talent, but we have Andy Reid and Edgar Davids in his position. He had a strong season for us but he now needs to play more games. With this being possible at another very good team it is an excellent opportunity for Reto.
"He is a young lad and I have agreed with Reto that it will be good for him to go away and get more experience, but he is still a player for our future."
