Nigerian-Born Defender Ezekwem Joins Freiburg From Bayern

Nigerian-born German defender Kimberly Ezekwem has completed his transfer to German Bundesliga outfit Freiburg on a two-year deal.

The young left-back joins Freiburg from five-time European champions Bayern Munich on a free transfer and has signed a contract with the club until 2020.

Kimberly Ezekwem, 17, who has been tipped to follow in the footsteps of Bayern Munich star David Alaba, had featured for the youth teams of German sides such as SC Freising and 1860 Munich before moving to the Bayern Munich junior team.

The German U17 international has been training with the Freiburg U19 team for the better part of the last one month but remains a serious doubt for the team’s league opener against Unterhaching U19 on August 11 as he’s presently recovering from a knee injury.
