Mitchell Weiser is headed to the German capital. Hertha Berliner SC sporting director Michael Preetz confirmed Thursday on twitter the 21-year-old has signed a contract with the club, ending his three-year tenure with Bayern Munich.

Reports Tuesday indicated Weiser has signed on for three years, his contract set to expire in the Summer of 2018. Only four other players – Peter Pekarík, Valentin Stocker, Genki Haraguchi, and Julian Schieber – are signed on to play for Hertha Berlin that long.
Weiser joined Bayern straight out of 1. FC Köln's U19 team in 2012, but only made 17 appearances in his three years with the club. With his second professional contract, he joins a team in Berlin who only has Roy Bereens and Alexander Baumjohann as options on the right flank.
