Leverkusen sign Wendell from Gremio

Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Lars Bender is hopeful that they can halt their run of four successive defeats in all competitions.

LEVERKUSEN, Germany -- Bayer Leverkusen has signed wing back Wendell from Brazilian side Gremio with effect from next season.

The Bundesliga side said in a statement that the 20-year-old, whose full name is Wendell Nascimento Borges, has signed a five-year deal through June 2019.

Leverkusen sporting director Rudi Voeller said the left-footed Wendell "is a huge talent who can help us decisively from the start. We're certain that he can enhance the great tradition of top Brazilian players at Bayer Leverkusen."

Leverkusen chief executive Michael Schade said the club used a release clause in the player's existing contract to make the transfer.

Wendell said he was advised by Gremio captain Ze Roberto, a former Leverkusen player, to join the club.
