Werder Bremen have announced an agreement to sign talented England youth international Lee Buchanan from Derby County.
The 21-year-old left-back, who can also play at centre-half and on either flank, made his England U21 debut in November 2020 alongside Bayern Munich's now Germany international Jamal Musiala and has seven youth international caps for his country. He will add both versatility to Ole Werner's newly promoted side and competition for Anthony Jung on the left-hand side of defence.
"I’m looking forward to my time here, to meeting the fans and playing in the Bundesliga," said Buchanan. "It’s one of the best leagues in Europe."
Werder director of professional football and scouting, Clemens Fritz added: "He's a very talented player who has a lot of experience despite still being young. We think he's got a serious amount of potential, and he plays with dynamism and real intensity."
All four players will have the chance to make their Bundesliga debuts on Matchday 1 of the 2022/23 campaign, when Werder travel to Wolfsburg on Saturday 6 August.
