Third new signing

Ghawilu strengthens the U21

Kasra Ghawilu will join the 1. FC Köln under-21s next season. Beforehand, the 20-year-old played with SSV Jeddeloh in Regionalliga Nord.

The under-21s are looking forward to their third new arrival ahead of the coming season. After the arrivals of Lucas Musculus and Tyson Richter, Kasra Ghawilu will join FC. The 20-year-old is able to play a variety of positions on the left-hand side. In Regionalliga Nord this season, Ghawilu managed 29 appearances for SSV Jeddeloh and eight goals. The Iran-born left-footer played for the 1. FC Magdeburg U19.

Matthias Heidrich, head of the FC youth academy, said: “Kasra fits our profile brilliantly and, despite his young age, already has experience in senior football. His goals per game record at SSV Jeddeloh was good and we expect him to thrive in our attacking system next season.”

Kasra Ghawilu commented: “FC are a club with big tradition. I want to gather valuable experience here and take the next step in my development. I’m already looking forward to my new team and the season with the under-21s.”
