All White Marco Rojas has been loaned out to German second division club Greuther Furth for the 2014-15 season.

The 22-year-old winger is contracted to Bundesliga club VfB Stuttgart but endured an injury plagued debut season in 2013-14.

Despite a strong pre-season with Stuttgart, club management have decided Rojas' development will be best served with regular gametime in the 2.Bundesliga.

According to German newspaper Bild, Rojas is expected to make his debut for Furth on Monday against Ingolstadt.

Furth president Helmut Hack said: "We have long thought about what type of striker we need to complement our attack. Marco is very fast, agile and a goal threat. We are now even more variable in our ways."

Furth coach Frank Kramer went and watched Rojas in the flesh before agreeing on the loan deal.

"I wanted to once again get a feel for Marco," Kramer said.

"He has, physically, made ​​a very solid impression. He is lively, fast and scores goals. The VfB has worked well with him. We are not dreamers and know that Rojas' class has not yet been demonstrated to the Bundesliga. But the boy has enormous potential."

Furth finished third in the 2013-14 2.Bundesliga season.
