Lamine Sane joins Werder Bremen
German Bundesliga club Werder Bremen have acquired the services of Senegal defender Lamine Sane on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee.
The 29-year-old joined from French side Bordeaux and had a $4.45 million release clause in his contract activated.
“I would like to thank Bordeaux for allowing me to make the move and Werder Bremen for having faith in me,” Sane told the club website.
“I am excited to play in the Bundesliga, because I have followed it for many years.
“To play in these stadiums and with this atmosphere, especially at Werder, is something I am really relishing. I want to make my contribution to a successful season as quickly as possible.”
He could come up against his younger brother Salif Sane, who plays for Hannover in the second division in Germany.
