Matthias Ginter is apparently about a return to SC Freiburg. According to bild, Borussia Mönchengladbach’s 28-year-old DFB defender could be announced promptly.

Ginter already announced Gladbach during the winter break not to extend his expiring contract. The central defender is therefore free of charge. Most recently, Inter Milan and Aston Villa were also traded as potential interested parties.

Born in Freiburg, he comes from the SC youth and played in Breisgau from 2005 to 2014. Ginter once celebrated his Bundesliga debut under SC coach Christian Streich. From 2014 to 2017 he played for Borussia Dortmund before moving to Gladbach.
