Bayer Leverkusen Successfully Acquires Another Nigerian Striker

Nathan Tella’s journey takes a new turn as he joins the ranks of German Bundesliga outfit Bayer Leverkusen, departing Southampton in a significant five-year agreement, as reported by PUNCH.

Bayer Leverkusen made the confirmation of this promising striker’s arrival through a concise Twitter announcement this Saturday.

The tweet enthusiastically conveyed, “Nathan Tella BABY! We take immense pleasure in unveiling the signing of the 24-year-old English talent, committed until 2028!”

In the wake of an impressive loan tenure last season at Burnley, where he notably contributed 17 goals and five assists, pivotal to the Clarets’ successful campaign to secure the English Championship title, Tella’s status at Southampton was enveloped in uncertainty. Speculation about a possible return to Burnley arose, yet the Clarets declined to meet Southampton’s stipulated conditions.

Ultimately, the deal found its destination with Bayer Leverkusen, who showcased their willingness to meet the 24-year-old’s £20 million valuation set by Southampton.

Hailing from England while being of Nigerian descent, the young striker will now forge an alliance with Victor Boniface, the prominent frontman at the Bay Arena.
