Bernard Tekpetey joins Fortuna Dusseldorf on two-year loan deal

The German Bundesliga side have confirmed the loan signing of the Ghana U23 striker until 2021.

Ghana youth forward Bernard Tekpetey has completed his move to Fortuna Dusseldorf in the ongoing transfer window.
The 21-year-old has joined the Red and White lads on a two-year loan deal from Schalke 04 with an option to buy.
"Bernard Tekpetey fits in perfectly with our requirement profile. He is a young, developable player who has already been able to set the first accents in German professional football," emphasizes Fortunas sporting director Lutz Pfannenstiel
"His speed and assertiveness made him one of the best offensive players in the Bundesliga last season. I am convinced that he can also show his strengths a class higher."
He returned to Schalke 04 after a successful loan stint at SC Paderborn where he bagged 10 goals.
Tekpetey is currently a member of the Ghana U23 team.
