Goalkeeper Gerhard Tremmel has left Swansea City to join Bundesliga outfit Werder Bremen on loan.
The move, subject to international clearance, was confirmed on the official Swansea website with struggling Werder Bremen keen to strengthen in their bid to avoid the drop from Germany’s top flight.
Tremmel rejoined Swansea on a two-year deal last August after his original contract had expired earlier in the summer.
But the 37-year-old, who secured a Capital One Cup winner’s medal in 2013, has failed to make a single appearance this season.
Lukasz Fabianski has been ever-present in the Barclays Premier League, with Kristoffer Nordfeldt preferred to Tremmel for the cup games.
Munich-born Tremmel first joined Swansea from Red Bull Salzburg in 2011 and has made 52 appearances for the Welsh club.
Swansea have also confirmed that Diego Bortoluzzi has joined Francesco Guidolin’s coaching staff at the Liberty Stadium.
Bortoluzzi worked under Guidolin at Palermo, Parma and Udinese and was most recently at Verona.
The 49-year-old becomes the third Italian on the Swansea coaching staff, which also includes former Chelsea midfielder Gabriele Ambrosetti.
