Jens Petter Hauge will spend the rest of the 2022/23 season with KAA Gent. The reigning Belgian Cup holders are loaning the Norwegian from Eintracht Frankfurt until the end of the current campaign.
Hauge joined the Europa League winners in August of last year. His loan from AC Milan was then made permanent in May, with the 22-year-old under contract in Frankfurt until 30 June 2026.

In his debut season, the attacker made 26 appearances in the Bundesliga plus 12 in the UEFA Europa League. He's yet to feature this term.
"In recent years we've had very positive experiences with loaning promising young players to Belgium," said board member for sport Markus Krösche. "Jens Petter possesses great attributes but needs regular competitive football at his age. He can now gain this at European level again, which is why we came to the joint decision that this is the right step for him at this point in time."
