SC Freiburg have added a signing in the form of Daniel-Kofi Kyereh. The 26-year-old joins from FC St. Pauli and will start training in the coming week.
Daniel-Kofi Kyereh was, with 12 goals and 10 assists, one of the most effective attacking midfielders in the Bundesliga 2 last season. For the Millerntor club and, before joining them, SV Wehen Wiesbaden, he has scored and set up 27 goals each in 91 second-division appearances. Kyereh has both German and Ghanaian citizenship, and has won 12 caps for the Black Stars so far.
“Kofi has an exceptional amount of creativity on the ball, reads the game well and is very determined. These qualities will do a lot to help us and our game,” said CEO Jochen Saier. “He’s a player who has developed step by step over the last few years and has consistently reached higher and higher levels. Kofi still has potential and can make his game even more complete – we’ll work together to help him achieve that.”
Daniel-Kofi Kyereh himself said: “I’m impressed by the way SC Freiburg play, the way they have developed and the club as a whole. That’s why I was completely convinced in my decision to come here and be part of this team – I’m really excited for the coming season in both the Bundesliga and the Europa League.”
Both clubs have agreed not to disclose further details of the transfer.
