Championship side Brentford have this morning announced the signing of German youth international Vitaly Janelt from 2. Bundesliga club VfL Bochum on a four-year contract for an undisclosed fee.
“He is composed on the ball and is comfortable playing the possession-based game that we want to play. He is dynamic in his play and strong in the middle when it comes to duels. Most importantly, he has the aggressiveness and intensity in the high press that we want to have. He also has the ability to get around the pitch, which is important, not just in the Championship, but in modern football generally,” said head coach Thomas Frank.
