FC Bayern have signed 18-year-old Nigerian Daniel Francis. The midfielder has joined from FC Hearts Abuja on a contract until 2025.

The teenager will spend the 2022/23 season on loan at Austrian Bundesliga side Austria Klagenfurt.

Francis was part of the FC Bayern’s World Squad project.

The Head of the Bayern Munich Campus Jochen Sauer stated that the Bavarians are delighted to sign the promising Nigerian midfielder “Daniel played to the fore during his time in the FC Bayern World Squad and acted very conspicuously in the test games. He’s attracted the interest of a number of clubs, so we’re delighted he’s signed and that he can now gain match practice at Austria Klagenfurt,” Sauer said.
