Last season, Jann-Fiete Arp was still on loan at Holstein Kiel. Now the second-division club has signed the striker permanently and given him a two-year contract.
Arp was loaned to the Störche by FC Bayern last season, for whom he then played 26 times. The 22-year-old has “settled in very well”, according to Uwe Stöver, Kiel’s managing director of sport. “He has faced the challenges of the team and the league in a professional manner and has shown his potential. We are convinced that he will give us a lot more pleasure here and continue to grow in his development. “
In2019, Arp joined FC Bayern from Hamburger SV, where he failed to make the jump into the first eleven. He was mainly used in the second team. The loan to Holstein Kiel followed with the now subsequent permanent commitment. “I felt incredibly comfortable here. That’s why it wasn’t a difficult decision for me to want to continue on KSV’s path,” the striker was quoted as saying in the Kieler’s press release on Friday. Arp’s contract in Kiel runs until 2024.
