Brentford midfielder Konstantin Kerschbaumer has joined 2. Bundesliga side FC Inglostadt 04 for an undisclosed fee, as confirmed by their official club website.

The 25-year-old has spent this season on loan at Arminia Bielefeld in the Geman second tier and will remain in that league for the next campaign with Inglostadt.

Kerschbaumer joined Brentford in July 2015 and played 31 games for the Bees in his first season in the Championship. However, he fell down the pecking order under Dean Smith and only featured 21 times for them in the 2016/17 season. He was then loaned out to Bielefeld for this campaign and has been a key first-team player for them.

He started his career in Austria with his local sides FC Tulln and AKA St. Pöltenn before he was snapped up by Rapid Wien in 2009. He went onto become a key player for them after impressing during loan spells at Vienna and SKN St. Pölten.

Kerschbaumer was then signed on a permanent basis by SKN St. Pölten in 2013 and spent two seasons playing for them before moving to FC Admira Wacker in January 2015. After just seven months with them, he was brought to England by Brentford by their former boss Marinus Dijkhuizen.

He was in and around Brentford’s first-team for his first two seasons at Griffin Park but it is no surprise that he has been allowed to leave them on a permanent deal to join Ingolstadt.
