Head coach Ole Werner is also looking forward to Stage’s arrival. The Dane has so far won one cap for his country. “He has mainly played in central midfield or as a number eight. He’s physically strong, has a solid football background and can be a threat on goal as well. We’re convinced that he will be able to help us out immediately,” said Werner.
Jens Stage said: "I'm really excited to play in the Bundesliga. Werder Bremen are a well-known club in Denmark, not just because of how close Bremen is to the border. I knew I wanted to take this chance as soon as I heard about the interest. I can hardly wait to play at this stadium in front of the fans."
Stage made his professional debut for Aarhus in the top tier of Danish football in May 2016, before moving to Copenhagen in 2019. He made a combined 206 professional appearances for both clubs, scoring 32 goals in total.
