Nigerian striker Anthony Ujah moves to promoted Union Berlin



Anthony Ujah has moved to promoted Union Berlin from Mainz on a three-year contract to 2022, the Bundesliga newcomers said Thursday.

“I’m looking forward to an exciting challenge and want to put my experience and my performances at the help of the team in order to deliver a successful season,” the 28-year-old Nigerian striker Ujah said.

The forward has also played for Cologne and Werder Bremen in Germany and has 51 goals to his name from 171 Bundsliga appearances.


“Anthony Ujah is a striker who has proven his class at several clubs in the Bundesliga and scored many goals,” said Oliver Ruhnert, Union’s director for professional football.

“I’m absolutely sure that he will be extremely valuable for us with his experience.”

Union secured a historic first promotion to the Bundesliga by defeating VfB Stuttgart in the play-off at the end of last month.

Since then they have turned Suleiman Abdullahi’s loan move from Eintracht Braunschweig into a permanent switch and added five other players to their squad.

The fixtures for the next Bundesliga season are to be published on June 28.
