German-born Ghanaian forward Ransford-Yeboah Konigsdorffer has sealed a transfer move to German Bundesliga II side Hamburger SV.
The player had agreed personal terms with Hamburg whiles his current club Dynamo Dresden were haggling over a fee but an agreement has been reached.
The 20-year-old striker signs a four-year contract with the Rothosen.
"We are very pleased that we were able to convince Ransford, another young player with development potential, of HSV and our path. He is a fast, technically very well-trained player who can be used flexibly in the offensive and was not nominated for the U21 national team recently for nothing," says board member Jonas Boldt about the transfer.
Königsdörffer has already arrived at the HSV training camp in Styria and will train with his new teammates there today.
"The people in charge have had a lot of confidence in me right from the start and I am very happy that the transfer is now fixed. Now it's time to get to know everything. I'm looking forward to the new challenge, the team and the way we want to play football. Here in the training camp, I want to be fully involved from day one," says the centre-forward.
Ransford-Yeboah Königsdörffer, as his full name is, was born in Berlin in 2001 and, after playing for his youth clubs SC Minerva and SC Charlottenburg up to the U19 level, spent a total of five years at Hertha BSC's junior training centre before moving to Dynamo Dresden's A Juniors in 2019.
He made his professional debut with the Saxons on 20 December 2019 at the age of 18, when he was substituted in the 72nd minute of the match at 1. FC Nürnberg.
In the past two and a half years, the 1.83 m tall attacking player played a total of 76 competitive games for Dresden. In the past season, he played in 30 games in the 2nd division, scoring five goals and setting up five others.
In September last year, Königsdörffer, who also has Ghanaian roots, made his first appearance for the German U21 national team.
In the match against San Marino on 2 September 2021, he was substituted in the 73rd minute. Before that, the right-footer had already made two appearances for the DFB's U20 national team. Now he will also wear the jersey with the rhombus in the future. At HSV, he will be given the number 11.
