Rangers Send Scout To Watch Bundesliga Shot Stopper, As Star Confirms He Won’t Renew Contract

Rangers had a scout in attendance as Hertha Berlin’s second team played Lokomotive Leipzig last week, according to reports in Germany.

The Gers were there to watch goalkeeper Jonathan Klinsmann, the son of former Tottenham and Germany striker Jurgen.

The 22-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season, and the shot-stopper has confirmed that he will be leaving Hertha in July:

“I have learned a lot in the last two years, now I want to reach the next level. Unfortunately, that was is possible with Hertha. ”

Klinsmann has made just one senior appearance after arriving from the University of Berkeley in the summer of 2017. The American Under 23 international started a Europa League group match against Ostersund during the 2017/18 campaign.

Since then, the keeper has been named as an unused substitute on two occasions for the senior side this season, but he has been mostly used in the Bundesliga club’s second team.

Klinsmann has made 14 appearances in the fourth tier of German football for Hertha II this campaign, conceding 19 goals and keeping four clean sheets in the process.
