Nuremberg have further bolstered their frontline options after signing Japanese international Yuya Kubo on loan from Belgian outfit KAA Gent with an option to make the deal permanent at the end of the season.
“Yuya can be played in a number of attacking positions,” said sporting director Andreas Bornemann. “As a result, he will add to our options. I saw him play multiple times during his time with Young Boys Bern and kept him on my radar.”
Schalke have a new left back! Moroccan defender Hamza Mendyl, 20, has signed from Lille for an estimated €7 million.
“He provides exactly what we want from a left back – athleticism, dynamism, solidity and attacking impetus,” coach Domenico Tedesco said in a club statement.
