Croatian defender Leverkusen loan a permanent deal

20 January 2015, 18:20

BERLIN - Defender Tin Jedvaj turned his two-year loan switch from AS Roma to Bayer Leverkusen into a permanent transfer on Tuesday, signing a deal that will keep him at the German club until 2020.

The 19-year-old Croatian international joined the Bundesliga team this season and instantly impressed Leverkusen bosses and fans.

"Tin Jedvaj has massive potential and he has shown it in just a few months at Bayer," sports director Rudi Voeller said in a statement.

"His versatility will continue to be a source of great joy for us. That is why we immediately decided to tie Tin to us."

The tall defender quickly earned a spot in coach Roger Schmidt's attacking team, scoring twice in 14 league games while also showing his tough-tackling side with five yellow cards.

Leverkusen, who are third in the Bundesliga, take on Atletico Madrid in the Champions League last 16 next month.
