As bottom of the table, Greuther Fürth is directly relegated to the second Bundesliga. It had been clear for some time that Jamie Leweling would also play first class in the coming season. Several Bundesliga clubs vied for the offensive player.
As ‘Sport1’ and ‘Sport Bild’ now unanimously report, Union Berlin has won the race for Leweling. According to ‘Sport1’, the Irons will pay a transfer fee of four million euros and equip the 21-year-old with a four-year contract.
Borussia Mönchengladbach, Eintracht Frankfurt, Stuttgart, Hoffenheim, Mainz and Wolfsburg also showed interest in the U21 international. In 33 competitive games this season, Leweling has had eight goals (five goals, three assists). His move to Union will be announced shortly.
