Stoke defender Kevin Wimmer will join Bundesliga side Hannover 96 on loan for the 2018/19 season.
The Austria international joined the Potters from Tottenham last summer for £18m and played 19 times in all competitions.
Wimmer fell out of favour as the campaign went on, however, with his last game for Stoke coming as a substitute in the 3-0 defeat to Manchester United on January 15.
The 25-year-old - who signed for City from Cologne for £4.3m in 2015 - now joins a Hannover side that finished 13th in the German top flight last season.
Stoke appoint Rowett on three-year deal
Stoke City have announced the appointment of Gary Rowett as their new manager on a three-year contract.
Under the terms of the loan deal, there is scope for the move to be made permanent.
