1. FC Union Berlin's Laurenz Dehl has joined Bohemians on loan until the end of the season. The 20-year-old, a homegrown player in Köpenick, will head across to Ireland to experience first-team action – his second loan spell following time at Hallescher FC in the 2020/21 season.
Dehl has made 65 appearances for Union across the various youth teams, scoring 17 goals and taking seven assists. In Union's UEFA Europa Conference League campaign, Dehl was able to collect game time in Union colours. In April, Dehl extended his contract at the Stadion An der Alten Försterei with a focus on developing as a right wing-back in the long-term. His previous loan spell in Halle was a success – three goals and four assists in 23 matches in Germany's 3.Liga.
„An international loan – on top of that in an European capital – is the perfect step for Laurenz to gain valuable experiences. We are very happy for him that we have this opportunity and are confident that Laurenz will master this challenge,“ said Oliver Ruhnert, 1. FC Union Berlin's Managing Director of Professional Football.
