Bayern have signed 18-year-old Nigerian talent Daniel Francis from FC Hearts Abuja on a 3-year contract until 2025.
Francis was part of the FC Bayern World Squad. He will immediately join Austrian Bundesliga side Austria Klagenfurt on a season-long loan.
Jochen Sauer, director of the FC Bayern Campus said:
“Daniel came to the fore during his time in the FC Bayern World Squad and really stood out in the friendly matches. He attracted interest from other clubs, so we’re pleased to have signed him and that he’ll now be able to gain match experience at Austria Klagenfurt.”
At Klagenfurt, Francis will meet up with Chinese goalkeeper Liu Shaoziyang, who’s also on loan there from the German record champions.
