Bayern Munich have signed former Nigeria U-17 midfielder after impressing his coaches at the Bayern Munich World Squad
Daniel Francis, a member of the Golden Eaglets team to the 2019 U-17 World Cup has signed a three-year-deal for Bayern Munich.
Francis was the captain of the Bayern World Squad team and impressed during his time there, convincing the team handlers to give him a professional contract.
The 18-year-old midfielder has been loaned to Austrian Bundesliga side, Austria Klagenfurt where he’s expected to be brushed up and prepared for the future.
The FC Hearts of Abuja player featured just once for the Golden Eaglets in Brazil, in a match against Hungary.
Jochen Sauer, Head of FC Bayern Campus said;
“Daniel played to the fore during his time in the FC Bayern World Squad and acted very conspicuously in the test games. He’s attracted the interest of a number of clubs, so we’re delighted he’s signed and that he can now gain match practice at Austria Klagenfurt.”
The midfielder was chosen as captain from a team of 24 players who underwent training under Klaus Augenthaler and Ze Roberto in Rio De Janeiro and Munich.
