Bayern Munich reach agreement to terminate Jann-Fiete Arp’s contract

Bayern Munich and Jann-Fiete Arp have reached an agreement to terminate the player’s contract, according to Bild.

The 22-year-old has one-year remaining on his current deal, and not until 2024 as previously thought. Bayern will pay a reported compensation fee of €3m. Arp will then join Holstein Kiel, where he spent the 2021/22 2. Bundesliga on loan, scoring two and creating two in 23 games.

Arp joined Bayern Munich from Hamburg in 2019 for €3m but played just 13 minutes of first team football, instead developing with Bayern II, where he played 41 games.

Winner of the U17 Fritz Walter Award, given to the best German youth player in that age category, in 2017, Arp has failed to develop as Bayern bosses would have hoped. Now 22, the German forward played 845 minutes of Bundesliga football for Hamburg, before joining Bayern Munich.

As part of the agreement with Holstein Kiel, Bayern will receive 35% of any future transfer fee.
