Taiwo Awoniyi has said he is pleased to make a permanent transfer to Bundesliga outfit Union Berlin.
Berlin paid 7.5 Million Euros to sign Awoniyi from Liverpool after a successful loan stint last season.
“After lots of loan moves in previous years, I want to finally come and have a home,” Awoniyi said.
“I owe so much to Union, so it makes me happy and proud to be back here. It’s fantastic to continue on the great path with the club. I will give everything to quickly pick up where I was before my injury.”
“We got to know Taiwo last season and we became sure of his qualities. His robustness, his dedication and his unconditional willingness to learn and develop were the deciding factors for us to give everything to make this transfer happen,” said Oliver Ruhnert, 1. FC Union Berlin’s Managing Director.
“We greatly appreciate the efforts of everyone involved to find a suitable solution.”
Awoniyi will travel down to the team’s training camp in Tirol, Austria, and he will wear the number 14 shirt for the 2021/22 campaign.
