St. Pauli move for midfielder Lukas Daschner

FC St. Pauli have made their latest new signing with midfielder Lukas Daschner moving from 3. Liga side MSV Duisburg.

He moves to the Millerntor after a breakthrough season with the Zebras, contributing 11 goals and 5 assists although the side eventually fell away from a promotion place.

The 21-year-old, who was born in Duisburg, had previously played 15 games in the 2. Bundesliga for them in the previous couple of seasons having been developed at the club.

He has signed a three-year contract with the Boys in Brown and is their sixth new signing of the summer, following the controversial signing of Rodrigo Zalazar last week. He will wear the number 13 shirt.

Sporting director Andreas Bornemann believes Daschner “fits in perfectly” with the young team he is building. Head coach Timo Schultz adds that he will bring “a significantly higher risk of goals from midfield” and “gives us additional options on the offensive.”

“I was really happy about the interest shown by St. Pauli,” said Daschner, who describes the club as “a sporting fit” for him. He “can hardly wait to get started.”
