Werder Bremen preparing loan move for Southampton centre-back Jannik Vestergaard

The defensive department of the Werder Bremen squad needs quality additions this winter.

The latest reports in England suggest that Werder Bremen are preparing loan move for Southampton centre-back Jannik Vestergaard.

The Denmark international was signed by Southampton in July 2018 from Borussia Mönchengladbach. The 27-year-old has a contract until 2022 with the club.

Vestergaard made 37 appearances across all competitions for Southampton, scoring one goal in return.

The 27-year-old is considered to be one of the best centre-backs in Denmark.

As a member of Denmark national football team, Vestergaard won 17 caps and he scored one goal.

Florian Kohfeldt wants to sign a new centre-back and Jannik Vestergaard is one of the names at the top of his wishlist.

The Denmark international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of defensive player Kohfeldt wants to target in the winter transfer window.

Vestergaard is a traditional defender. He is solid while defending and holds his position perfectly.

According to Tribalfootball, “Southampton defender Jannick Vestergaard is a loan target for former club Werder Bremen. The 27-year-old joined for £18m from Borussia Monchengladbach but has made just 11 appearances this season. Bundesliga side Bremen would prefer a loan move for the towering centre-back, says the Daily Mail. Jack Stephens and Jan Bednarek have moved ahead of Vestergaard in the pecking order under Ralph Hasenhuttl. Saints have enjoyed a recent upturn in fortunes so the prospect of Vestergaard forcing his way back into the line-up look slim at present.”


Werder Bremen will have to come up with the right proposal to convince Jannik Vestergaard to join the club.

A move to Werder is exactly what Vestergaard needs to reignite his career, and we hope he is able to do just that.

Undoubtedly he would be a fantastic recruit for Werder Bremen.

It will be interesting to see whether Werder will make their move during the winter transfer window.
