Club career[edit]

Borussia Mönchengladbach[edit]

Kurt joined the youth setup at Borussia Mönchengladbach in 2007, progressing through the youth ranks until his promotion to Borussia Mönchengladbach II in 2014.[4] In the years prior to his promotion, Kurt played for the Borussia B-Jugend, U-17 team, registering 31 goals and 21 assists in 52 games.[1] Because of his good performances for the U-17 side, Kurt signed a developmental contract with Gladbach, intended to tie him to the club until 2016 at which point a professional contract would come into effect.[1] For the 2013–14 season, Kurt played in Gladbach's U-19 team, where he scored 16 goals in 24 appearances.[4] This led to his promotion to the second team and he made his professional debut against Viktoria Köln on 2 August 2014, replacing Marlon Ritter for the last 15 minutes of the 2–1 Regionalliga West match.[4][5]

In late August 2014, it was reported that Bayern Munich were interested in signing the player and that Kurt wanted to make the move to Bayern.[1] Gladbach officials refused to allow the player to leave before his contract expired in 2016.[1] However the DFL ruled that since the contract was signed when Kurt was underage, 16, that it was not legally accepted and that Bayern were allowed to purchase the player.[1]

Bayern Munich[edit]

On 31 August 2014, Bayern Munich confirmed that they had signed Kurt to a four-year contract.[6] Kurt made his Bayern debut for the reserve team against SV Schalding-Heining[7] on 17 October 2014.[8] He made his debut for the first team in a 1–0 home win against Hertha BSC.[9]

In the first 21 matchdays for the reserve team during the 2015–16 season, he started only 10 matches.[10] He also came on in another five substitute appearances during that time span.[11]

Hertha BSC[edit]

Kurt signed a contract with Hertha BSC until 2019 on 7 January 2016.[12][13]
