Werder Bremen have allowed Jurica Vranjes, Dusko Tosic and Kevin Schindler to leave the club on loan.
Vranjes has joined Turkish side Genclerbirligi Ankara until the end of the season, while Tosic and Schindler have moved to Bundesliga 2 side MSV Duisburg until the summer.
The trio have been allowed to leave because Vranjes and Tosic have been deemed surplus to requirements, while it is hoped Germany Under 21 international Schindler will build experience.
MSV Duisburg appear to have been allowed to sign Tosic and Schindler in return for the recent deal which saw the German second-tier side let Sandro Wagner join Bremen.
Schindler had spent the first part of the season on loan at Bundesliga 2 outfit FC Augsburg.
