Tim Hoffmann agrees professional terms with Hertha

Hertha BSC have continued to show faith in youth, with Tim Hoffmann set to turn professional in the summer. The agreement between the club and the versatile defender has been in the works for some time, and will see Hoffmann remain at the club until 2026. “We’re happy that Tim will be continuing his sporting journey with us as a pro from the summer. His talent and potential have been clear to see for some time now and we are very excited about his continued development,” said Hertha sporting director Benjamin Weber. “Signing a pro contract with Hertha BSC is a dream come true for me. I’m proud to be able to play for my club as a boy from Berlin and I want to carry on growing as a player in the coming years,” added Hoffmann.

The 18-year-old has been with Hertha since joining the academy as an U13 in the summer of 2017 and made swift progress through the youth ranks. In September 2017, the defender took to the field with the U23s for the first time, and has since made eight further appearances for the squad in the Regionalliga Nordost. Additionally, first-team head coach Pál Dárdai has afforded the youngster a number of opportunities in friendlies in the last six months, with Hoffmann taking part in games against KV Mechelen and Rangers. The Germany U18 international made his competitive first-team debut in the 2-1 win over Fürth on 11th February.
