Deniz Undav scored a fantastic lob against Arsenal last season in our 3-0 win at the Emirates.

Deniz Undav has joined Bundesliga side Stuttgart on loan for the 2023/24 season. 

Head coach Roberto De Zerbi said, "It is with some regret we decided to let Deniz go and play. Last year he was crucial for us in achieving our goals, but he deserves that chance.

"We wish him well for the season with Stuttgart and we look forward to welcoming him back at the end of the season."

Technical director David Weir said, "Deniz is at a stage in his career where he wants to play every week and we respect that.

"He is a popular guy in the dressing room and did really well at the end of last season, but this is a good opportunity for him to get his first taste of top-flight football in his homeland. 

"We will be monitoring him closely throughout the year and wish him the best of luck with Stuttgart." 

The 27-year-old joined us in January 2022 from Royale Union Saint-Gilloise, heading back to the Belgian side for the remainder of that season on loan, where he finished as the league’s top scorer and helped Union to a second-place finish. 

Deniz made 30 appearances in all competitions for us last season, scoring eight goals.
