Ghanaian forward Bernard Tekpetey has now signed for Bulgarian giants PFC Ludogorets on a two year loan deal.

The winger after putting pen to paper revealed that he joined the Bulgarian side because of the prospects of playing in Europe's elite competition the Champions League.

Tekpetey parted ways with Bundesliga 2 side Fortuna Dusseldorf after their relegation from the German top flight.

However, after leaving the club, Tekpetey's parent club, Schalke 04 has confirmed that the Ghana forward has joined Bulgarian side, PFC Ludogorets on a two-year loan deal.

Tekpetey was loaned out to Ludogorets for two years with an option to buy.

“Everything I’ve heard about Ludogorets so far made me choose this club. They play good football and they are always part of the Champions League and Europa League, too. This is important for every player who wants to develop his career”, said Tekpetey.

“It is different compared to the Bundesliga but my first impression is that training is on a high level here. The coach wants us to create more attacks. I was happy to see the players so motivated to play for the win. I am also glad to be part of a club with such ambition. I need to work hard and that is the most important thing. This way, I will reach my goals”, the player added.
