ST, 31, AUT | Chemnitz FC -> Dynamo Dresden
It was definitely not due to Philipp Hosiner that Chemnitz FC had to relegate to the regional league. The Burgenland contributed 19 goals and 6 assists in 28 games in the last third division season, finishing third in the scorer list. Hosiner will also be chasing goals in the 3rd league in the coming season: The 31-year-old joins second division relegated Dynamo Dresden for two years – the direct return is the goal for the Dresdeners. Dynamo is Hosiner’s sixth club in Germany. Before Chemnitz he played for Union Berlin and 1.FC Cologne, and at a young age for Sandhausen and the youngsters from 1860 Munich, where he moved at the age of 17.

ZM, 35, ESP | Villarreal CF -> Al-Sadd Sports Club

But the 35-year-old bit his teeth and had a second spring at Villarreal last season. In 35 La Liga games, he scored eleven goals and prepared ten more. After the last game of the season, his colleagues, knowingly that he would leave the club, let him live.
