Ujah joins Bremen from Cologne

05 May 2015, 17:51

Berlin - Werder Bremen have signed Nigeria striker Anthony Ujah from Cologne for next season, both clubs confirmed on Tuesday.

The 24-year-old Ujah has been given a four-year contract for an undisclosed transfer fee having actioned a release clause in his current contract after he passed a medical check in the last few days.

Having scored 10 goals for Cologne this season, Ujah will replace Bremen's Under-20 striker Davie Selke, who has signed for second-division RB Leipzig for next season.

"We have been watching him very intensely for a very long time and have built up a full picture of him," said Werder's director of sport Thomas Eichin.

"He is a fast and prolific striker who can continue to develop with us."

The Nigeria international joined Cologne from Mainz on loan in 2012 and the move was made permanent for the 2013/14 season as he became a fans' favourite and has so far made 62 Bundesliga appearances for the Rhineland club, scoring 24 goals.
