Marco Hober, the Borussia Dortmund U23s' longest-serving player, is set to leave BVB and join Regionalliga club SV Rödinghausen with immediate effect.
The 27-year-old first joined the Borussia Dortmund reserves on a one-and-a-half-year loan in January 2016. Following a spell with Sportfreunde Lotte, he joined the Black & Yellows for a second time in the summer of 2018.
During his six-year stay, Hober made 128 appearances for the BVB reserves. Only eight players have featured more often for the Black & Yellow U23s. He set up 17 goals and scored three himself. This season, Hober has made four appearances for coach Christian Preusser's side. At his own request, he is now returning to his home region of East Westphalia to join SV Rödinghausen, who currently sit ninth in the Regionalliga West.
"Hobi has always given 100% and has been a true role model for many young players. We wish him all the best and lots of success in Rödinghausen“, said Ingo Preuss, BVB's sporting director.
