The league matches haven't started again yet, but they're playing again, even if indoors only. And there is transfer news, too. So let's finally start this year's thread! The first piece of news is really no news at all: Birgit Prinz will not be returning to Frankfurt. (Did anyone seriously think she would even consider it?) She has signed with 2nd league club Hoffenheim instead, and she'll indeed be cleared to play for them in league matches. But she'll be focusing on working in sports psychology for the club, presumably beyond the women's football section. In other news, Sara Däbritz, from last year's promising U17 national team, has signed with my Freiburgers, and Melanie Leupolz from that same team has extended her contract. Duisburg won one of the indoors cups that were played last weekend, beating Frankfurt in a penalty shootout in the final. Another cup, with all 1st league clubs participating, will be played in Magdeburg next weekend.
