Werder Bremen sign Germany U-21 striker Wagner

Werder Bremen have moved to strengthen their attack and halt their slide down the Bundesliga by signing Germany under-21 striker Sandro Wagner from second division side Duisburg.

The 22-year-old has put pen to paper on a four-and-a-half-year contract after passing a medical on Friday, despite still being in recovery following a torn knee ligament.

Wagner, who starred in Germany's Under-21s European Championship winning campaign, has been out of action since September 18, but is on the road to recovery and should be available to Bremen coach Thomas Schaaf in the coming weeks.

"Things are going well. The operation was only four months ago, but I can practically train fully already,'' the striker said. Nevertheless, I will take a bit more time to be able to take my chance at Bremen when I am 100% fit.

"I can hardly wait. The transfer to Werder is a dream come true for me as I join the club I supported as a child. As soon as I heard that I had the chance to move to the Weser, my decision was made despite having a few other offers.''

At Bremen, Wagner links up with Mesut Ozil, Marko Marin and Sebastian Boenisch, three other members of that successful Germany Under-21 side.
