Joseph Akpala "privileged" to sign for Werder Bremen

Joseph Akpala admits that joining Werder Bremen is a "huge privilege".

New Werder Bremen signing Josepg Akpala has revealed his delight at signing for the club after agreeing a four-year deal to join from Club Brugge.

Akpala, who appears to be a direct replacement for Markus Rosenberg, who joined West Bromwich Albion earlier this month, has described his move as a "privilege".

"For me it's a big step in my career," Akpala told Bundesliga.de. "It's a huge privilege to be able to play for Werder Bremen.

"This club belongs amongst the top teams in Germany. I want to build on the great Bremen times of the past and make a positive impact on the team."

Akpala scored 19 goals in 30 starts in all competitions for Brugge.
