Bayern: Bayern bring international Wimberg from Chemnitz

Munich (dpa / lby) - national basketball player Niklas Wimberg will play for runner-up FC Bayern Munich in the future. As the five-time German champion announced on Sunday, the 26-year-old power forward signed a two-year contract in Munich until 2024. Wimberg had played for Niners Chemnitz in the Bundesliga for the past three seasons.

The native of Oldenburg has already completed his first training sessions in his new home. "I've always dreamed and worked towards playing at the highest European level," said the winger, according to the club's statement. He now has the opportunity "to be part of something big in one of the strongest organizations in Europe".

Wimberg, who is currently not in the national team squad, was part of the DBB selection that qualified for the Olympics in 2021. At the summer games in Tokyo, the 2.06-meter-tall basketball player had two short appearances - so far he has played 14 times for the national team. "All in all, he has proven that he deserves this challenge, especially since his ambition is unusually strong to want to compete at Euro-League level," said Bayern sporting director Daniele Baiesi.
