While a move to the recently relegated side may seem far-fetched, the 31-year-old could be on his way back to Germany in some form this summer.
A return to German football could still very much be in the cards for the native Westphalian. Demme was linked with three Bundesliga clubs during the last January transfer window. VfB Stuttgart and Bayer 04 Leverkusen were specifically referenced while the third top-tier German side went unmanned. Demme could prove an asset for several teams. FC Köln, for example, will find themselves in need of a new defensive midfield anchor following the departure of linchpin Ellyes Skhiri.
