German Bundesliga champions FC Bayern Munich have captured Nigerian youngster Daniel Francis and immediately loaned him to Austria side Klangenfurt.
Former European champions announced the signing of the FC Heart of Abuja player on a 3-year deal.
”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 has signed and that he can now gain match practice at Austria Klagenfurt,” the club said.
For the second time this year, a total of 24 talents from all over the world got the chance to show their qualities in the Bayern World selection project and due to his skills, Francis acted as captain of the selection, in training camps in Rio de Janeiro and Munich as well as friendlies under the direction of FC Bayern legends Klaus Augenthaler and Zé Roberto.
Francis was part of Nigeria’s Golden Eaglet to the FIFA U17 World Cup in Brazil in 2019.
