Brisbane Roar has approval a request from midfielder Ben Halloran for a transfer to a German Bundesliga 2 club.

The 20-year-old signed with Brisbane 12 months ago after beginning his career with Gold Coast United in the Hyundai A-League 2011/12 season.

“We never want to stand in the way of a player pursuing their dreams overseas,” Managing Director Sean Dobson said.

“As a club, we-ve got a great tradition of footballers forging successful careers overseas.

“We-ve enjoyed having Ben here and we hope he goes on to do great things in Germany.”

Halloran made 28 appearances for the Roar, scoring four goals, before earning himself a new contract with the German club this month.
