Josip Drmic joins Hamburg on loan from Borussia Monchengladbach

Hamburg have signed Switzerland international Josip Drmic on loan from Borussia Monchengladbach until the end of the season.

The 23-year-old forward, who has scored eight goals in 25 appearances for his country, has passed his medical with Hamburg and will link up with his new teammates at training on Tuesday.

Drmic, who has also played for Nurnberg and Bayer Leverkusen in Germany, told Hamburg's official website: "For me it's a new challenge.

"I'm looking forward to playing again and I hope to make a difference as soon as possible. I'm highly motivated and ready for the job ahead at HSV."

Hamburg made another late addition by signing Sweden winger Nabil Bahoui on a free transfer from Al-Ahli Jeddah in Saudi Arabia.

He has featured eight times for Sweden but struggled for playing time in Saudi Arabia. His contract runs through mid-2018.

Hamburg are currently 11th in the Bundesliga, seven points behind sixth-placed Gladbach.
