Weiser joined the Bavarian giants in the summer from relegated Cologne, for whom he made one senior appearance in the Bundesliga.

The Germany under-18 star, who made 22 appearances for the U17 side with four goals to his name, is expected to gain valuable pitch time with the Red Devils, who like Cologne lost their top-flight status last season.

Kaiserslautern currently sit third in the second tier table, which would earn them a promotion play-off match against a Bundesliga side for the right to regain promotion, but are 10 points behind the automatic promotion places.
