Anthony Ujah has decided to leave Werder Bremen for Liaoning FC in China. Before the move, there were speculation about his dissatisfaction in Bremen as reported here. In the end, he settled for the wise decision of leaving Bremen to further his career.
The seven times Super Eagles player of Nigeria had an offer from the Chinese club last season, but he refused the offer. Werder Bremen officials confirmed today that the deal is perfect. Although, according to Bremen, they had Ujah in their plans for the coming season, they had to seek an amicable way out to the satisfaction of everybody involved.
The reported transfer fee according to German media was in the neighborhood of 13 million Euro. Ujah came to Werder Bremen from Cologne for 4,5 million Euro.
Ujah joins a fellow African and former Werder Bremen team mate,Assani Lukimya, who left last season.
The deal is a win-win situation for Ujah and Werder Bremen. I hope with more money and playing time, Ujah can find his way in to the Super Eagles again.
