BERLIN (AP) " Hertha Berlin has signed 19-year-old midfielder Allan on a season-long loan from Premier League side Liverpool.
The Bundesliga club says the Brazilian, whose full name is Allan Rodrigues de Souza, impressed in a friendly game against second-division side Eintracht Braunschweig. He will wear the No. 20 shirt.
Hertha coach Pal Dardai says, "Allan is intelligent and has a good overview of the game. He's very robust and tough for his age, and he also has a good shot."
Allan joined Liverpool from Brazilian side Internacional in 2015. He played last season on loan at Sint-Truiden in the Belgian Pro League.
Also Friday, Polish goalkeeper Rafal Gikiewicz joined promoted Freiburg from Braunschweig, and Darmstadt signed Nigerian forward Victor Obinna on a free transfer.
