FC St. Pauli have tied down 21-year-old defender Marvin Senger for the immediate future by handing him a new contract. At the same time, player and club have agreed that Senger will return to third-division FC Kaiserslautern for another loan spell.
Marvin Senger joined the club's Under-17s in 2017 and rose through the youth ranks to make his senior debut in the 2019/20 season. The defender spent the second half of last season on loan at FC Kaiserslautern and made 15 appearances for the Betzenberg outfit.
Andreas Bornemann: "Marvin has performed well during his time at FC Kaiserslautern and played his part in keeping them up. We believe the best decision for his development is for him to spend another year gaining match practice in the third division. We're also convinced another loan can help Marvin to play a role in our future squad planning and that's why we've handed him a contract extension."
Timo Schultz: "I've known Marvin a long time and am convinced of his potential. His development isn't complete yet. He has come on as a footballer and a person in his time at Kaiserslautern and we believe this stop-off and the regular playing time associated with it is the right decision. We will continue to keep track of Marvin's progress, of course."
Marvin Senger: "I'm delighted St. Pauli still believe in me and that in extending my loan I get the opportunity to take the next steps in my development."
