Heading to Bayer Leverkusen

Florian Wirtz leaves FC

Under-17 player, Florian Wirtz has left 1. FC Köln and joined Leverkusen.

1. FC Köln and Bayer Leverkusen have agreed on a transfer for Florian Wirtz. The 16-year-old midfielder has joined the club on the other side of the Rhein with immediate effect.

Matthias Heidrich, head of the FC youth academy, said: “Florian Wirtz is a very talented player, who we helped developed for almost 10 years. In close co-operation with the first-team, we tried everything to keep him. The board, the managing directors and the coaching staff were all involved and we showed him the perspective of how his development could continue here. When a youth player then chooses another option, we have to accept that.”

FC wishes Florian Wirtz all the best for the future.
