Leverkusen have just confirmed the signing of Oliver Baumann, a German keeper previously playing for Freiburg. The price tag has not yet been confirmed, however it has been rumored around the £11,000,000 mark. Baumann will be used as a backup keeper in the forthcoming years, however he is regarded as a 'hot prospect' so will take the number 1 shirt in seasons to come.
Baumann spoke to an interviewer before departing his old club Freiburg - 'I am very pleased to have signed for such a great team, and hope i can be the best keeper at the club one day.'. Baumann went on to say 'I treat Freiburg as a club and a home and i am very sad to leave, but the future is all that matters now, and hopefully i can prosper in years to come'
