Fürth (AP) - U21 national player Paul Jaeckel changes from second division soccer team SpVgg Greuther Fürth to 1. FC Union Berlin.

It was already clear that the defender would leave the Franconia.

Now the new club is known.

“We still have very important games ahead of us and that's the only thing I'd like to focus on right now.

That's why there are no farewell words yet, just the promise that I want to help the team until the last day, ”said Jaeckel, who wants to say goodbye with the promotion to the Bundesliga.

Then he would meet the Franks with Berlin.

After the 3-2 draw against SV Sandhausen on Wednesday evening, the Fürth team are well placed in the promotion race as second in the table.

"We have known for a long time that Paul will not extend his contract with us, so of course it is no longer news," said Sport Director Rachid Azzouzi.

“Paul became a U21 national player with us and of course aroused desires.

It's a shame that he wants to tackle a new path from the summer, but until then we want to contest a successful season finale with him. "

Jaeckel was not present in the preliminary round of the U21 European Championship.

But he still has the opportunity to recommend himself for the finals from May 31st.
