Suara.com – Persib Bandung and Dewa United have reached a profitable agreement by carrying out an exchange loan between Henhen Herdiana and Robi Darwis in the second round of the 2023/2024 Liga 1 transfer market.
Maung Bandung took the decision to send home Henhen Herdiana, who was previously loaned to Dewa United at the start of this season.
Instead, Dewa United will borrow Robi Darwis to navigate the remainder of this season.

This decision was taken to meet the team’s needs, especially after the right-back player stock crisis occurred at Persib due to I Putu Gede’s move to Bhayangkara FC.
Henhen Herdiana, who throughout his loan spell at Dewa United, appeared impressive by registering his presence in 14 matches, of which 12 were as main players.
“Henhen will return to play for PERSIB in the second round of Liga 1 2023/2024,” said Teddy Tjahjono, Deputy CEO of PT PERSIB Bandung Dignity, as reported on Persib’s official website.
Henhen started his professional career with Persib in the match against PSM Makassar in the 2017 President’s Cup.
Since his debut in Liga 1 2017, Henhen has defended Persib in 89 official matches.
Dewa United gave permission for Henhen to return to Persib on the condition that they could borrow Robi Darwis as a replacement, especially because the coaching team needed players in the midfield position.
In order to provide Robi with the opportunity to get more playing time and develop his career, Persib agreed to loan Robi to Dewa United for the remainder of the season.
Until the 19th week, Robi had only appeared in 7 matches with Persib, considering the tight competition in his position.
