SV Werder Bremen have completed the signing of another talented youngster. 17-year-old Daniel Ihendu has joined the club from RB Leipzig. Clemens Fritz, head of professional football, announced the deal on Sunday.

“We’re pleased to have signed a talented young centre-back in Daniel. He’s got a really good physique, is strong in the air and gets stuck in too. We’re confident that he will take the next steps in his career here with us,” explained Clemens Fritz.

The defender will begin training with the U23s, but will also work with the first team on a regular basis from 5th July.

“I’m looking forward to my time in Bremen and I’m certain that this is the right step for my development,” said Ihendu. The 17-year-old moved to Leipzig in 2018 from Tennis Borussia Berlin’s academy, and went on to feature for RB’s U17s and U19s.
