    Bayer 04 have signed the Dutch right-back Jeremie Frimpong. The Holland U20 international joins the Werkself from Scottish champions Celtic. The 20-year-old has signed a contract at Leverkusen to 30 June 2025.

    "In Jeremie Frimpong, we have been able to sign a player with a great facility to develop and this again is a forward-looking transfer for Bayer 04. He's technically strong, incredibly quick and has the desire to go forwards," declared sporting director Simon Rolfes. "Over the last year and a half, Jeremie has proved himself at an absolute top club in the physically very challenging Scottish league and in European competition. That important experience at Celtic, but above all his footballing ability, make him a very attractive young player."

    From the perspective of Leverkusen's sporting managing director Rudi Völler, "We have completed a transfer completely in the spirit of Bayer 04 with the signing of Jeremie Frimpong. Young, accomplished on the ball, versatile, with top pace and a very lively style of play – players like that fit in with the way we want to perform on the pitch," said Völler. "If Jeremie continues in the same way in the coming years with the consistency he has shown up to now then he could be an important part of our team."

    FRIMPONG: "I REALLY LIKE THE WAY BAYER 04 PLAY"
    For the 20-year-old right-footer, the move to Bayer 04 represents a "great opportunity to be able to play in one of the best leagues in Europe," said Frimpong who will wear the number 30 shirt for Leverkusen. "I'm totally looking forward to the Bundesliga and, of course, this club in particular. Bayer 04 Leverkusen have regularly been in the Champions League and the Europa League. They demonstrated their ambition on the European stage last year in the two games against Glasgow Rangers," said Frimpong who came through the youth ranks at the English Premier League club Manchester City. "I really like the offensive, fast and technical style of play at Bayer 04 and I hope I can soon help the team."

    All the best, if I was a wee dutch guy with no real allegiances and Bayer Leverkusen came calling while we're in the state we're in, with horrendous decisions being made in management and someone like Lennon as my boss, I'd have done the same.

    Good move for him.

    No hard feelings whatsoever and wish him all the best.

    Has all the attributes but needs better coaching to reach his full potential. Final ball needs a lot of work.

    Wish the lad all the very best of luck.
    Be interesting to see how he develops under a set up that pays more than lip service to game Analysis/diet/fitness/tactics etc.

    Which is why they will actually develop him properly, something we failed to do as soon as he walked in the door. Same with most players.

    Doesn't matter who it is that's giving it big licks about a "development plan" - if he can't defend when he's almost 21 then he'll never be able to do it...

    Good luck to him. It's a good move and a step up. Obviously being well guided by his people for the good of his career.
