Per a release from FCBayern.com, Chris Richards and Bayern Munich have reached an agreement on a contract extension through 2025. Now, with a long-term deal in place, Richards will again leave Bavaria for a loan stint with Bundesliga rival Hoffenheim.

FC Bayern has extended the contract with defender Chris Richards until 2025 and is loaning the 21-year-old US international to TSG Hoffenheim for one season.
