Leverkusen Sign Mainz Starlet Andre Schuerrle

123126 Leverkusen Sign Mainz Starlet Andre Schuerrle

Andre Schuerrle Signs For Leverkusen.

Bayer Leverkusen and Mainz have agreed terms over German starlet Andre Schuerrle, who will make his move to Leverkusen official in the summer. Schuerrle has been on excellent form so far during this Bundesliga season, and has come under the radar of many of Europe’s top clubs. Leverkusen have tabled the best bid for both Mainz and Schuerrle, however, and have captured the young player.

Bayer Leverkusen president Wolfgang Holzhauser and head coach Jupp Heynckes had praise and for the player and for the deal which will see Schuerrle play for Leverkusen until 2016.

Holzhauser said, “We are glad to have signed a long-term contract with one of Germany’s biggest talents. We have tried to persuade him to come to us for over a year.” Schuerrle has already netted twice this season in just two league games, and could soon be making an apperance in Joachim Loew’s national side if he continues on this vein of form.

Heynckes praised the player and named him as one to lead the club into the future, “Andre Schuerrle is one of the outstanding offensive talents in the Bundesliga. We are delighted about his decision to join Bayer Leverkusen, and we are positive he will make it to an even higher level with us.”

Schuerrle also made a statement about his move, and is looking forward to joining up with Leverkusen: “I am very grateful to Mainz of how Christian Heidel and coach Thomas Tuchel went about my wish to join Bayer Leverkusen, and that they made my next step in my career possible already.”

Great move for Leverkusen, and definitely a star for the future.
