1. FC Köln have strengthened their attack. Emmanuel Dennis has joined on loan until summer from Belgian champions, Club Brugge.

“Emmanuel is a quick player, who can play through the middle as a striker as well as on the wings. His finishing ability last season saw him gain the interest of many top clubs,” said FC Managing Director, Horst Heldt.

Dennis managed five goals and one assist as Club Brugge won the league in the 2019-20 campaign. He also managed four goals and one assist in the Champions League qualification, Champions League group stage and the Europa League. The 23-year-old has already scored in the Champions League this season. In Belgium, he made nine league appearances. The Nigerian international missed several games due to family reasons, which he cleared with the club to travel home.

“The last six months were not easy for me. I want to play and score goals, and therefore I wanted to make a move in the current transfer window. I am pleased that I’m now at FC. I know what the sporting situation at FC is – therefore I want to play my part in keeping us in the league, by playing and scoring in a top league,” said Emmanuel Dennis.

Emmanuel Dennis was born on 15th November 1997 in Abuja, Nigeria. He began his footballing career with Abuja Football College. From there, he joined Zorya Luhansk before moving to Club Brugge in 2017. For the current Belgian champions, Dennis made 116 appearances and scored 29 goals (13 assists).

Dennis should be part of training on Wednesday and will wear the number 43 for FC.
