VVV-Venlo land Schalke forward

Transfers
Schalke forward Haji Wright has joined VVV-Venlo on an initial one-year deal, subject to international clearance.

Schalke forward Haji Wright has joined VVV-Venlo on an initial one-year deal, subject to international clearance.

The 21-year-old has joined the Eredivisie outfit for the upcoming campaign after being allowed to move on by Schalke.

The USA Under-23 international, who counts New York Cosmos and LA Galaxy in his homeland among his former clubs, made just seven senior appearances for Schalke, scoring one goal, after moving to Germany in 2017.

Wright says he needed to make the move in order to progress in his career and told the VVV-Venlo website: ‘Years ago I set my sights on a successful career in Europe.

‘After a number of seasons in Germany, I now hope to be important for VVV-Venlo.

‘The conversations with the people from this club gave me the right feeling to make this switch.

I am looking forward to play in the Eredivisie for VVV Venlo.

‘ Technical manager Stan Valckx believes he can play a key role for the side.

He said: ‘Haji is an excellent player who will give our forward line even more speed and power.

‘We are happy and grateful that we were able to agree a deal with Schalke and that he has opted to join us.

‘ Venlo say they expect to receive a work permit for the youngster in the next fortnight but, until the paperwork comes through, he cannot play for his new club during pre-season.
