(CNN) - Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is on his way back the U.S.
An official tells CNN that Bergdahl is scheduled to return to the United States overnight Thursday.
Bergdahl has been in a military hospital in Germany since he was released in Afghanistan after five years of Taliban captivity.
He is expected to be taken to Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio for continued rehabilitation.
Bergdahl was exchanged last month for five Taliban figures detained at the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
