Gambian striker, Kebba Badjie has moved to Halleschen FC on a season long loan from Werder Bremen.

The 21-year-old signed a one-year loan contract with the German Third Tier side, Chemie Halle. 

The German topflight side, Bremen, loaned Kebba Badjie to the Third Division side in order to get better playing time.

Clemens Fritz, Head of Scouting and Professional Football at Werder Bremen, hailed Kebba’s quality, saying that he is sent on loan to get a better playing time to develop.

“Kebba has developed very well and has also made progress in preparation. It is now important for him and his development to gain match practice.

A loan to Halle therefore makes perfect sense, as here he has the opportunity to get playing time at a good level and to take the next step,” explains Clemens Fritz, Head of Scouting and Professional Football at Werder Bremen.

Ralf Minge, Halleschen FC, sport director, also hailed the Gambian striker, saying that Badjie’s signature will help the team's attacking option.

“Kebba Badjie is a classic winger and thus another option for our flanks.
