Zieler began his youth career with FC Koln before moving to Manchester United as a trainee in 2005.
He left Old Trafford having made no first team appearances in 2010, with his only games in English football coming in a brief loan spell with Northampton Town.
He has made over 100 appearances for Mirko Slomka’s men, who currently sit in seventh place in the Bundesliga.
