Rovers re-sign Fabrice Hartmann on 11-month loan

Sligo Rovers are thrilled to announce the re-signing of Fabrice Hartmann on loan until June 30th 2024 from German Bundesliga giants RB Leipzig.

Hartmann had spent the first months of the 2023 season at The Showgrounds before returning to Germany to undergo a rehabilitation programme at his parent club after sustaining a hamstring injury in May.

Hartmann is now returning to full fitness and will go straight into John Russell’s squad for next Friday’s crunch game against St. Patrick’s Athletic at The Showgrounds.

Rovers boss John Russell is happy to have the German back in Sligo:

“I’m delighted to bring Fabrice back to the club again.

“He is a player of immense quality. I felt he was just getting into his stride before his injury so to have him back with us is exciting.

“He makes the difference in the final third with his ability to create chances and score goals.

“I’m sure our supporters will be excited by this news”.

The 22-year-old winger has said he’s excited to be back at The Showgrounds:

“I am really happy to extend my loan at Sligo Rovers.

“I want to thank the manager, John Russell for the trust that he’s given me.

“Im looking forward to getting more minutes and helping the team as much as I can for the rest of the season and next”.

Hartmann will once again wear the number 11 jersey for the Bit O’ Red for the rest of the season.
