Jamilu Collins will play in the German Bundesliga in the new season after his club SC Paderborn gained promotion on the final day of action in the lower league.
Paderborn lost 3-1 at Dynamo Dresden with Collins in full-game action, but closest rivals Union Berlin could only manage a 2-2 draw at Bochum.
Paderborn thus finished ahead on better goals difference after Union Berlin also finished on 57 points from 34 matches.
A few years ago this club were playing in the regional league.
