Career[edit]

He began his career at SV Westhoven in 1993 and moved after two years to SpVgg Porz. He left Porz after three years when he was scouted by 1. FC Köln in 1998. He played six years in Köln's youth team before he moved to Yurdumspor Köln in the German Oberliga in 2004. After one year he left Cologne and moved to VfL Leverkusen. In June 2006 he joined Bayer Leverkusen. He was loaned out to FC Augsburg on 7 January 2009 until the end of the 2009–10 season.[1] In July 2010, he joined 1. FC Nürnberg on a two-season-long loan.[2] Hegeler became a key player in Nürnberg's successful squad and played in every 34 matches of the season. Hegeler returned to Leverkusen at the start of the 2012–13 season.

On 2 October 2013, Hegeler secured a 2–1 win for Leverkusen over Real Sociedad in the Champions League with a fantastic last-gasp free-kick.[3]
