Benfica and Hoffenheim agree loan move for Juracek

Benfica Blog
Benfica and Hoffenheim have agreed to terms in principle for the loan move of left back David Juracek to the German side for the remainder of the season, with an option to make the move permanent for €12M.

The 23 year old Czech only arrived at Benfica in the summer with the hopes of replacing departing long time left back Alex Grimaldo but has not panned out and with Benfica's recent acquisition of left back Alvaro Fernandez earlier this week, Benfica no longer requires his services.

Benfica paid Slavia Prague €14M when they acquired Juracek and the club is hoping to recover a big chunk of their payment with the buy on clause added to the loan. Juracek has played only 478 minutes for the club across all competitions and has not provided much in the way of offense.
