Aremu signs new deal

FC St. Pauli have tied another player to the club on a long-term deal after director of sport Andreas Bornemann agreed terms with defensive midfielder Afeez Aremu on an extension of his contract, which was originally due to run until June 2023.

Aremu moved to the Millerntor from Norwegian first-division club IK Start in August 2020. The 23-year-old Nigerian has since made a total of 48 Bundesliga 2 and five DFB Cup appearances for the Boys in Brown. This season, he has featured in twelve competitive matches, nine of them from the start.


Reaction to the new deal

Director of sport Andreas Bornemann: "We're happy to have reached an early agreement with Afeez to continue our association. On arriving in Hamburg he took a while to get used to the new league and the football we want to play, but he has made great strides in his development since then and is an important part of our future plans."

Head coach Fabian Hürzeler: "Afeez is one of the best tacklers in the squad. His defensive qualities were obvious from the start, but he’s also improved on the ball, in particular. We see more potential for him in this area, not least because he has a strong desire to develop his game, so I'm delighted he's continuing his journey with us."

Afeez Aremu: "Hamburg has become a second home for me and my family, which is why I'm happy to continue playing for St. Pauli in the years to come. I'd like to thank the club for their support and trust, which I aim to repay with good performances."
