Official : Former Golden Eaglets midfielder joins European giants Bayern Munich

Through a statement on their official website, European giants Bayern Munich have announced the signing of Nigeria underage international Daniel Francis from FC Hearts Abuja.

 

The 18-year-old has put pen to paper on a three-year contract with the German Bundesliga champions, until June 30, 2025.

 

Francis earned himself a professional deal at Bayern Munich through FC Bayern's World Squad project, impressing the coaching team led by Bayern legends Klaus Augenthaler and Ze Roberto.

 

He was handed the captain's armband for FC Bayern World Squad due to his leadership qualities.

 

Bayern Munich have also informed that the promising central midfielder will be spending the whole of the 2022-2023 season on loan at Austrian Bundesliga side Austria Klagenfurt.

 

 

A member of the Golden Eaglets squad to the 2019  FIFA U17 World Cup, he made one appearance during the tournament in Brazil, coming off the bench in their opening group match versus Hungary.

 

Against Ecuador, Australia and the Netherlands, Francis was a non-playing substitute.
