This comes as a bit of a shock to English football fans considering he was scouted by some top-tier English club teams, but the Canadian's departure was foreseen, as Blackburn tumbled out of the Premier League and into the Championship after a dismal season under manager Steve Kean. 

The 22-year-old winger joins a German side that placed fourth in the Bundesliga, just four points (and five goals) shy of third place. Their position for Champions League football next season looks tempting as Blackburn will fight to gain entrance to the Premier League once more. 

He's not a stranger to German football, having played in Bundesliga 2 for two seasons (SC Paderborn 07 and St. Pauli, respectively). 

Hoilett played 34 games for the Rovers this season, scoring seven goals and recording five assists.
