‘Ter Stegen move back on’

The transfer of Marc-Andre Ter Stegen to Barcelona is back on after FIFA suspended the club’s transfer ban pending an appeal.

Barca asked that the ban be suspended while their appeal is heard and it was confirmed today that the governing body have agreed to the request.

Mundo Deportivo has since reported that the suspension of the ban means Ter Stegen’s move from Borussia Monchengladbach will now be completed.

Ter Stegen was targeted as the replacement for Victor Valdes, who announced he was leaving Camp Nou this summer but has since suffered a serious knee injury.

The deal is not yet ready to be confirmed but a fee of €12m has been agreed between the clubs and Gladbach have signed a replacement for next season.

Alen Halilovic can also complete his move to Barca B, with the deal to go through this summer.
