Monaco loan German defender Henrichs to Leipzig

German international Benjamin Henrichs has joined RB Leipzig on loan for next season from Monaco with an option to buy, the principality club announced on Wednesday.

The 23-year-old full-back, who last played for Germany at the 2017 Confederations Cup, signed for Monaco from Bayer Leverkusen in 2018 for a reported 20 million euros ($22.6 million).

Leipzig could reportedly make the deal permanent at the end of the 2020/21 campaign for 15 million euros.

Henrichs failed to impose himself in Ligue 1, making just 44 appearances in all competitions for Monaco, scoring once.
