Cardiff City have confirmed that striker Robert Glatzel has left the club on a permanent basis to join German second-tier side HSV Hamburg.
Glatzel joined Cardiff from Heidenheim in his native Germany back in the summer of 2019 for a reported £5.5million.
However, the striker failed to really settle in the Welsh capital, scoring just 11 goals in 58 appearances in all competitions for the Bluebirds, before spending the second-half of last season on loan with Bundesliga side Mainz.
The 27-year-old has now returned to Germany on a permanent basis, signing a three-year contract with Hamburg, keeping him at the club until the summer of 2024.
Are these 20 facts about Cardiff's five most expensive signings true or false?
Reports from German outlet Bild had earlier claimed that Hamburg were in talks to sign Glatzel for a fee of around €500,000.
Taking to Twitter to react to news of Glatzel’s departure, plenty of Cardiff fans were keen to give their thoughts on the striker’s time in Wales.
Here, we take a look at what some of those Bluebirds supporters had to say.
What on earth was our recruitment like if we bought him for £5.5million to sell him for £425,000! Somebody’s having the last laugh there and it’s not us!

Deserved better, was class on his day, sadly style of play didn’t suit him, if he has a full season, up front with Kieffer, we could’ve had a great partnership, non-the-less, all the best at Hamburg

Always had my fingers crossed it would work out for him but it never did sadly.

Another striker ruined by Cardiff. So many strikers we have had in recent years have struggled from lack of service 😤😒

Think we are the only club that could possibly sell Messi or Ronaldo for a fiver. Don’t know what it is with City and transfer market
