Hoffenheim misfit Franco Zuculini is to make a season-long loan move to Real Zaragoza, according to the German club's general manager.

The Argentine had only just returned to Rhein-Neckar-Arena after six months on loan Racing Club in his homeland.

But Hoffenheim general manager Ernst Tanner has announced the 20-year-old midfielder will again be sent elsewhere in order to play more football.

Tanner told Deutsche Presseagentur: "Hoffenheim and Real Zaragoza have agreed on terms. Franco will be playing for Zaragoza until the end of the season.

"He will have better chance to play regularly at that club. And regular match action is definitely helping him to develop as a player."

Zuculini joined Hoffenheim from Racing Club two years ago for a transfer fee of £3.9m. He has a contract at Hoffenheim until June 2014.
