Werder Bremen have today announced the signing of Oliver Burke from Sheffield United on a free transfer.
“Oliver has seen a lot in his career so far and brings a certain amount of experience from 110 first division appearances in European leagues. He’s in good physical shape and has a high pace that will do our game good,” said Clemens Fritz.
Burke added: “It’s nice to be able to return to the Bundesliga and then play for a big club like Werder Bremen. Werder’s interest made me very happy and I’m happy to be here now. I want to bring the experience I’ve gained over the past few years to the team and will train hard to play my part in the success.”
The 25-year-old attacker is already on his way to meet his Bremen teammates at their training camp in Zell am Ziller.
Burke has Bundesliga experience having joined RB Leipzig in 2016 for just over €15m, but failed to make an impact leaving to join West Brom a year later for the same amount.
The Scotland international has spent the last six months on loan at Championship side Millwall, where he scored two and created one in 13 games.
