Andreas Albers signs Regensburg extension

SSV Jahn Regensburg have extended the contract of striker Andreas Albers by a year until 2022.

The 30-year-old joined the club from Danish side Viborg FF last summer, scoring eight goals in 33 2. Bundesliga games.

He is likely to have a more important role to play this seaosn following the departure of captain and talisman Marco Grüttner.

“A year ago, the name Andreas Albers was a blank slate in German professional football. A year later it looks different,” said Christian Keller of the Dane. He now expects Albers to hit the ground running next season and “bring his performance more consistently onto the pitch.”

“My family an I already feel really at home in Regensburg,” said Albers. He adds that he has “enjoyed the club and the atmosphere in the stadium,” and is “looking forward to starting again” and “developing myself further.”

It is a boost for the club after missing out on two of the top targets, including former loan player Chima Okoroji, but they have also strengthened, including with strikers André Becker and Kaan Caliskaner, who will support and challenge Albers next season.
