A De Bruyne loan deal is close according to the kicker.
supposedly deal for de Bruyne was agreed on monday, unveiling wednesday... will train later this week. apparently no option to sign permanently, would like to hear more tomorrow
According to a local newspaper De Bruyne has his medical today morning at Werder. If it runs successfully, he will be presented on 2 PM CET at a press conference.
should make for an interesting side if the starting 11 can stay fit
Yes, with the signing there is pressure on the offensive central midfielders as well as on the wingers.
So, midfield planning is done with this loan deal.
i am curious now as to where Fritz ends up playing, as well as the starting 11 for the Bayern match on Saturday... it would be nice to see what de Bruyne can do out there against the big boys
Am I the only one that feels somewhat irked that we have to resort to find starters through loan deals with no option to buy? I know we've done it in the past but it really seems as though our back is against the wall here. I can't complain too much as we've managed to bring in 3 quality players on a very limited budget in Elia, De Bruyne, and Peterson. I guess i'm just bitter. Hopefully this squad can manage to get into Europe this year. We obviously need the money.
meh, i don't know...
it doesn't bother me much. plus i think the Selassie signing will also be a good one, he looks like a very promising attacking wingback
It feels like short-term planning. When the loan deal ends the club has again look for new players, but the strategy also has advantages:
Werder minimizes the transfer risk (if an expensive player does not perform, a club looses a lot of money), get players they would not have been able to buy (De Bruyne is rated very highly. Werder would not have been able to compete with clubs as Chelsea to get such a player. This way he plays at least some time for us and we see how he performs in the BL.) and additionally make contacts.
We have to see how it works. Werder took a lot of risk with making a big cut (Wiese, Naldo, Pizarro, Marin, Rosenberg, ...), but it was about time, because the structure of the team was not well (higher salary budget than Dortmund and mid-table performances). Now the squad is financially more healthy, but it needs to be seen how all works together.
i especially agree with this... change needed to happen, new young blood gets an opportunity and the books will look better. potentially even better if a shirt sponsor comes around this term
Markus Rosenberg joins as a free transfer West Bromwich Albion. All the best in the EPL, Markus.
According to the Daily Mirror Sebastian Boenisch also is close on finding a new club. He played as a test player yesterday for Hull City.
Ups, mixed the towns. Boenisch made a match for Stoke City, not Hull.
Eisenfuss, I motion that you write a preview for werder bremen and post it in the forum here.
Thanks Schoppe to mention me, but you know, I am too lazy to write too much. So I hope it is ok when I share a video introducing our new players.
Nice selection of scenes IMHO, cudos to youtube user Werderman1000. Give the lad some youtube likes or feedback.
And one "thank you and good bye video" for the players who left:
Also cudos to the video maker SVWMax95.
Werder is connected with Joseph Akpala, a 25 years old striker from FC Brugges. The Nigerian scored 74 in 194 games in the Belgian league (at transfermarkt.de it is 63 in 191??, estimated market value 4 million €).

it looks like Kreiszeitung is tossing out a 1.3 million Euros figure, Weser Kurier tossing out 1.2 million Euros... either are a nicer figure for KA, if true
at least he plays a decent amount of matches per term since he has been there... but that strike rate is nothing to write home about
At this point we just need some depth at the striker position, and 1.2-3 million euros for an established striker who nets in approximately every 3 games....is not a band deal.
The prospect isnt a sexy transfer, but it seems a good one.
He is a proven goalscorer, but no superstar. This leaves Petersen and especially Füllkrug space to develop. I first expected Wurtz from the reserve to help out as a 3rd CF, but the club chose this more safe way.
he should come in handy, in case one of the young guys, or both, hit a slump at some point in the season
Thanks to our glorious team the Akpala transfer is uncertain. Allofs stated after the match: "We were on a good way and calculated with the second round, but now we have financially a different situation. We will have to see, if we can still realize a transfer."
Allofs, Filbry and Fischer found somewhere 1.5 million € + money for a striker salary.
So Akpala is currently in Bremen to do the medical test.
Based on videos he seems a Sanogo type of striker. With 3 central forward and backup Wurtz, who regularly collects experiences in the reserve, we should finally enough depth without influence the development of Füllkrug and Petersen (even if the later must improve compared to the cup) too bad.
@BMike86: Nice video.
The transfer postponed a bit. Current rumor is that he gets presented at the Dortmund pre-match press conference.
I really hope this Akpala wont take Nils Petersen or Fuellkrug's minutes.
Only one CF spot, so he either play a lot or dont play
