Bayer Leverkusen have completed the signing of Hertha BSC defender Mitchell Weiser. The 24-year-old has signed a contract until 2023 and will join the club officially once the transfer window opens.
“With Mitchell Weiser’s signing, we’ve taken an important step in extending the depth of our squad and also increasing our quality. That has become crucial against the background of our return to European football next season. In order to deal with the commitments on the European stage in addition to the Bundesliga and DFB Cup and continue to be successful, we need to have like-for-like and high quality alternatives in all positions,” said sporting director Rudi Völler.
The fee is reported to be around €12 million.
