New Freiburg midfielder Daniel-Kofi Kyereh says that he is looking forward to a new challenge at his new club as its an important step in his career.

After a long protracted transfer move, the midfielder has finally settled on Freiburg as they have reached an agreement with FC St. Pauli for his transfer.

"This is an important step in my career. I'm looking forward to the new challenge at Freiburg, but it isn't easy for me to say goodbye" he told the FC St. Pauli club website.

"I had a very successful time at FC St. Pauli and met a lot of great people. The progress I've made here would not have been possible without my teammates, the coaching staff and everyone around me. I'd like to thank them for that and wish the club a successful future."

Kofi Kyereh has been the subject of interest from a lot of clubs in the Bundesliga as Freiburg beat off competition from a lot of clubs for the signature of the Ghanaian.

The FC St. Pauli midfielder has been a delight to watch this season for his side as he pushed their promotion which eventually faltered.

Kyereh has previously been linked with Mainz and Werder Bremen too, but the latter dropped out of the race,

St. Pauli will receive around €4.5 million for Kyereh, who scored 13 goals and provided 11 assists in 32 games through the 2021/22 season.

The 26-year-old Ghana international joined St. Pauli from Wehen Wiesbaden ahead of the 2020/21 campaign. In his two seasons with the Boys in Brown he made a total of 67 competitive appearances and was involved in 43 goals (22 goals, 21 assists).

Kyereh also made the step up to international football during this time and has since played twelve times for Ghana.
