Bernard Tekpetey, Christopher Antwi-Adjei and Philimon Tawiah have secured a Bundesliga spot with Paderborn despite their 3-1 loss to Dynamo in the final day of the season.
Paderborn finished second behind FC Koln with 57points to stage a return to the German top-flight having suffered relegation at the end of the 2014–15.
The Club have made strides in the last two seasons by earning promotion to the 2. Bundesliga from 3. Liga and eventually qualifying to the Bundesliga.
Tekpetey who scored 10 goals this season together with Antwi-Adjei enjoyed lots of playing time for the Club with Tawiah only spending most of the time on the bench.
Reports say Schalke O4 are planning to re-sign Tekpetey after a splendid season with Paderborn.
