Hertha BSC have announced the signing of Chidera Ejuke on loan from Russian club CSKA Moscow.

The Nigeria international had used the temporary employment rules approved by the world governing body FIFA to suspend his contract with the Horses.

The 24-year-old winger, who will wear Jersey No 40 this coming season, signed a one-year loan deal with the German capital side.

In his first interview, the 24-year-old expressed his delight in his new challenge in Germany while disclosing why he chose the club.

He told herthabsc.com: 

I’m happy to be here and I’m excited! I spoke to my agents, and we researched the club once we knew they were interested.

Once I had more information and a clear plan, I quickly knew I wanted to come here – and I have.

I can’t wait to meet the lads and the staff. I know that last season didn’t go to plan, but we’re all here together now to start a new campaign – and I want to have some great moments with the team.”

I spoke with Philippe! He told me how much he loved the Bundesliga and that he has this great desire to play here again.

He told me only good things about the league and about Hertha. That obviously made me even more curious and was definitely a factor in my decision to come here.

Hertha sporting director Fredi Bobic aded:

Chidera has proved himself in several European leagues already and brings good skills alongside speed and versatility. We’re sure that he’ll improve our game with his abilities.

I’m looking forward to playing for Hertha, to the Bundesliga and this special challenge. I want to do my bit in helping the club achieve its goals.

Ejuke is the second African in Hertha’s squad after former Ghana international Kevin-Prince Boateng.
