Former Ukraine club Atlet Kyiv midfielder Douglas Emeka Emmanuel is close to completing the transfer to the German Bundesliga after weeks of training.
The 23-year-old midfielder has been a revelation for the German side while training and closely monitored by the club.
The current crisis in Ukraine forced the Nigerian to leave the country, and Douglas is close to agreeing on a deal in the coming weeks since his arrival in Germany.
“Germany is a nice country, the people are well coming, and it feels good to be here. My hope and thoughts are also with the good people of Ukraine in this difficult time,” Douglas said.
Douglas has played for Nigerian Professional Football League club Ikorodu United before moving to Ukraine.
In Ukraine, Douglas played for teams like FC Rubikon-Vyshneve Kyiv, FK Kobra Kharkiv, FC Talento Kyiv and most recently, Atlet Kiev.
