FC Nurnberg are eyeing a loan move for Huddersfield Town defender Christopher Schindler this summer.

That’s according to Kicker, who say the German side had identified the 31-year-old as part of their plans to look at low-cost options to strengthen their squad.

The newspaper explains that having secured their status in the 2.Bundesliga for next season with three games remaining, the focus is now on 2021/22.

The ‘trick’ for the club is to land reinforcements despite a ‘tight budget’, and that has led them to ‘prefer to fish in the pond’ of players on loan.

A ‘very interesting candidate’ in that regard is Huddersfield defender Schindler, with the club keen to add to their defensive options.

Why this is the case isn’t mentioned, but it’s likely to have something to do with the fact he is experienced in German football and that his contract is expiring this summer.

Huddersfield have an option to extend that by a year, but it remains to be seen if they will activate that clause.

If they don’t, it seems Nurnberg will be waiting to scoop him up.
