Gaziantepspor set to loan Jiloan Hamad from Hoffenheim
Gaziantepspor are in talks with the Bundesliga side TSG 1899 Hoffenheim to loan the 24-year-old winger Jiloan Hamad according to the Turkish newspaper Fanatik.
The Falcon’s manager Okan Burak is keen to bring in young talented footballers during the January transfer window and wants to bolster his attacking options.
The report goes on to say that Gaziantepspor are aiming to sign Hamad on a loan with an option to buy at the end of the season.
Hamad joined Hoffenheim last year but has found himself on the fridges of the squad. The Sweden international has made just seven appearances for the Bundesliga side.
The former Malmö FF player has six caps for the senior Swedish national team and has 28 appearances for the U21 side.
Hamad’s contract with Hoffenheim expired in 2017.
Gaziantepspor are currently in seventh place in the Turkish Super League with 24 points in 17 games.
