Guendouzi will now spend a year in the Bundesliga and football.london can confirm that Hertha will not be paying a loan fee for him but will cover his wages.

“I am still young, I am only 21, so playing time was the top priority for me. So Hertha Berlin, I know that I will be able to express myself in a magnificent league.”
