Nai Reesa Sarpreet Singh: New Zealand’s Sarpreet Singh will be confirmed as a Bayern Munich player over the next 24 hours. The career-changing move will see Singh move from Wellington Phoenix to the European giants.
Daily Ent Xpress have been informed that the deal will result in Singh signing to a three-year contract.
20-year-old Sarpreet Singh has completed his medical and other tests, and is currently training with Bayern’s under-23 team at their pre-season camp in Austria.
“We are thrilled for Sarpreet,” said Phoenix general manager David Dome. “This gives him every possible opportunity to continue to develop his football. We accept that the A-League is not going to be the end destination for some players, and they will use it as a stepping stone.
“Especially young New Zealand players. The fact that Bayern Munich has come in for Sarpreet is amazing … we are thrilled for him, thrilled for the academy and those coaches who have worked with him. Sarpreet is obviously buzzing about it and we couldn’t be happier.”
Singh made his Phoenix debut in February 2017, and scored a goal on his first A-League start against Perth Glory a year later. Singh will realise the path remains steep, but he has put himself in the best possible position to succeed.
