WOUT WEGHORST is set to join Hoffenheim on loan from Burnley, according to reports.
The forward will leave Turf Moor on a temporary basis for a third time, having moved to Besiktas 12 months ago.
After six months in Turkey he joined Manchester United in January, but failed to make much of a positive impression at Old Trafford.
Weghorst, 31, scored two goals in 31 appearances for Erik ten Hag's side – before returning to Burnley for pre-season.
His comeback was not well received by Clarets fans, with some booing him during a pre-season appearance last month.
With the Premier League season set to kick off this weekend, Weghorst has sealed another move away from Burnley.
