Fabian Johnson to leave Hoffenheim after current season
After the World Cup, Fabian Johnson will have some decisions to make.
TSG 1899 Hoffenheim confirmed to the official Bundesliga website that Johnson, the U.S. left back and winger who is presumably going to be part of Jurgen Klinsmann's 23-man World Cup roster, will be headed to a new club after the conclusion of this season.
Johnson's contract expires at season's end, and instead of remaining at the club he has been at since 2011, he will be off to a new destination.
Hoffenheim had reportedly been hoping to extend Johnson, currently recovering from a broken hand, with a new deal, but to no avail. At 26, Johnson could theoretically increase his worth with a strong showing in Brazil, setting himself up for a solid pay day. As an out-of-contract player, he'll also have the flexibility to sign in or out of the summer transfer window, should he elect to take his time finding a new landing spot.
