SV Werder Bremen have made another addition to their squad for the upcoming season. After spending three years gaining valuable experience at second-division side Schalke 04, Keke Topp has put pen to paper on a deal with his former club ahead of the 2024/25 campaign. Werder’s managing director for sport Clemens Fritz announced the decision to sign the forward on Tuesday afternoon.

“Keke has developed well over the last few years. He’s demonstrated his ability during his time at Schalke 04, and we’re certain that has a lot of potential which we’re eager to work together to uncover. Keke is a Bremen boy at heart, so he shouldn’t find it too difficult to get settled in here,” explained Clemens Fritz, SV Werder Bremen’s managing director for sport.

Head coach Ole Werner is equally delighted to see Topp join his ranks for the upcoming season. “Keke is a powerful, physically strong forward who gives 100 percent every time he steps out on the pitch. He has a strong tactical knowledge and is a good finisher. His individual qualities and skillset will certainly help to strengthen our squad.”

The 20-year-old, who moved to Gelsenkirchen in 2021 from Werder’s U17s, has now come full circle. “I’m really pleased to return to Werder. I had great conversations with the club and they gave me a really good feeling about it all. I believe that Werder are moving in the right direction and I want to play my part in this development.”

Keke Topp played 26 games for FC Schalke 04 in the second division (5 goals), as well as featuring once in the Bundesliga. The attacker has won 16 caps for Germany across all age groups (U20s, U19s and U16s), scoring 10 goals.
