Union's homegrown Pfeffer loaned to TSG Hoffenheim

Jeff Vinnick

From Jonathan Tannenwald of Philly.com: The Philadelphia Union have loaned local product Zach Pfeffer, only 17, to TSG Hoffenheim of the German Bundesliga.

The Philadelphia Union will be without the services of the club's first ever Homegrown Player, Zach Pfeffer, for the entire 2013 season. But there's a good reason for it.

Officially, Pfeffer's tenure at Hoffenheim will begin January 7, as the Bundesliga takes a winter break during the coldest parts of the season. He'll remain abroad through the summer and return to the Union on December 31, 2013.

Pfeffer will spend the year with TSG Hoffenheim of Germany's Bundesliga, one of the top soccer leagues in the world.
