Following the recent announcement of Stephan Lichtsteiner, Augsburg have strengthened their side even further with the loan signing of Bayer Leverkusen’s 23-year-old defender, Tin Jedvaj. The Croatia international has signed on a season-long loan deal, lasting until 30th June 2020, for an undisclosed fee.
“Over the past few seasons, I have seen FCA as a club that has successfully facilitated the development of a number of players, and they have made a real effort to get me on board. I’m really happy to be here and I can’t wait to put on the Augsburg colours. I will do everything I can to help this club achieve its objectives this season,” said Tin Jedvaj while putting pen to paper.
“We’re absolutely delighted that Tin has decided to join Augsburg. Despite his young age he is already vastly experienced, with over 20 appearances for the Croatia national team, and he knows the Bundesliga really well. His strengths will be a huge addition to our side,” asserts sporting director Stefan Reuter.
Tin Jedvaj will take the number 18 shirt and will join up for the rest of the squad for training as early as today.
