Bayer signs Seeler's grandson



Bayer Leverkusen has signed the highly rated 16-year-old grandson of former West Germany international Uwe Seeler from Bundesliga rival Hamburger SV.

Leverkusen says midfielder Levin Oeztunali, a Germany youth international, has agreed to join the club from next season, with a contract through June 2018.

Oeztunali tells Leverkusen's website "many young German players started their careers with Bayer Leverkusen. I have a very good feeling about my decision and am looking forward to a great challenge at a top club."

The 76-year-old Seeler, who played 72 times for West Germany, is still considered an idol at Hamburg, and Oeztunali's departure will come as a blow for the club.

Hamburg sporting director Frank Arnesen told German daily Bild that the club made a huge financial offer to hold onto its prospect.
