Reports indicate that Brentford is set to sign Kevin Schade, a Germany international of Nigerian descent, on a permanent deal from SC Freiburg.
Schade initially joined Brentford on loan for the remainder of the 2022-2023 season, with an option to buy included in the deal.
However, Brentford is expected to make the deal permanent in the summer for a club-record fee of 24 million euros, as revealed by transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano.
Schade, who can play as a winger or a center forward, has appeared in twelve matches for Brentford and has already provided an assist.
Despite competition from Premier League rivals Liverpool, Brentford secured the talented 21-year-old’s signature. Schade’s permanent deal will see him sign a five-year contract with the club.
Notably, Keane Lewis-Potter is currently Brentford’s most expensive signing, but Schade’s deal is set to surpass that record.
Although Schade has made his senior debut for Germany, he remains eligible to represent Nigeria as well.
