Allan Rodrigues de Souza, or Allan, as he’s better known, will spend next season on loan at Hertha Berlin.
The teenage Brazilian is currently training with the Germans, and although a loan deal hasn’t been finalised – it’s expected to be officially announced soon.
Below, you’ll see the playmaker in his new side’s colours at their training ground.

Allan has already had loan spells at Finnish side SJK and Belgian outfit Sint Truden, but requires another temporary deal so he’s eventually granted a work permit to play in England.
Hertha finished seventh in the Bundesliga last term and are a massive step up in quality from the sides he’s played with so far.
That being said, this coming season will be a huge test for the South American, who has already impressed Jurgen Klopp since arriving from Internacional.
“When I came here, one or two months later Allan was here and I said ‘who is this?’” Klopp told the official website back in March.
“I saw him in training and I thought ‘oh my God, what can we do to keep this boy here and bring him into the line-up?’
“He’s 19 years old, an outstanding talent, a good player with a good attitude, everybody loves him, he’s a nice lad—so that’s really, really good. He’s a smart player.
“There is no chance in this moment here because he can’t get the permission to play here, so we have to send him out on loan.”
