I know it's difficult to read into a highlight reel but some of his saves look unreal. Apparently distribution is decent also. Second most saves in bundesliga last year behind Sonner. A top back up option I gotta say- I'd think Stefen would be leaving therefore (hopefully get a bit of cash for him also)

Wasn't some talk that Steffen would want to leave this summer with a view to getting regular game time so he could stake a better claim to being the USA's first choice in the World Cup? Presumably we'd get a fee for him so replacing him for free would also be a boost to our challenge for the net spend trophy.

It's in his best professional interests. Also seem to remember him mentioning that the last couple of years have been difficult for him on a personal level as well. Not sure if that's the standard covid stuff about missing home and all that but I think a fresh start will do him good.

Here is an article on him, notnsure about its reliability but is a decent insight


See why we are after him from the below

His place in Europe’s 99th percentile with 55.76 touches per game demonstrates that Bielefeld lived and died off his calmness at the back


Makes sense, Steffan probably wants a bigger role in the squad, this guy is 29 so will accept a pay rise and decent squad at a team he'll get a chance to win trophies


Plus we will likely sell Steffan for a 8-figure sum, whereas this guy is a freebie...so a little bit extra cash in the kitty
