FC St. Pauli sign Andreas Albers

FC St. Pauli have made their first attacking signing of the summer with the addition of striker Andreas Albers. The 33-year-old arrives on a free transfer from SSV Jahn Regensburg.

Albers spent four seasons in Regensburg, making 133 second division appearances for the club and contributing 36 goals and 13 assists plus two goals and two assists in nine DFB Cup ties. The 1.93m/6'3" striker had previously had spells in Denmark at Viborg FF, Silkeborg IF and Vejle BK.

Reaction to the deal:

Director of sport Andreas Bornemann: "Andreas Albers fits the profile for the central position in attack perfectly. He has the ability to operate as a target man but also has good footballing qualities. With his experience, professionalism and mentality, he's a perfect fit for our philosophy. We're pleased with the positive talks and the agreement with Andreas.“

Head coach Fabian Hürzeler: "Andreas Albers gives us another option for adding variation in attack and a new component in different phases of the game. With his size and experience he'll be a valuable addition to the team and improve us overall.“

Andreas Albers: "The talks with the officials quickly persuaded me to move to the Millerntor. FC St. Pauli play sophisticated football and I’d like to use my strengths to make the team even better as soon as I can. I’m obviously really looking forward to running out at the Millerntor as soon as possible.“
