Fortuna Dusseldorf has loaned Kasim Adams for the upcoming Bundesliga season from TSG Hoffenheim. The 24-year-old central defender is Ghanaian international and gets the back number 4. Adams will train for the first time this Thursday with the team.
Kasim Adams moved from the Swiss first division Young Boys Bern to TSG Hoffenheim before last season. In Berne he completed 69 competitive games, for the TSG he ran 15 times – including two games in the Champions League. The center-back also comes in his career on twelve missions and a goal for the Ghanaian national team.
“I am very happy to be with Fortuna now,” says Kasim Adams. “I’ll do my best to help the team in every training session and match. It will be important from the beginning that we win games and score points to get closer to our goal of relegation bit by bit. We should concentrate fully on that. ”
Fortunas sports director Lutz Pfannenstiel emphasizes: “Kasim Adams is a physically present and header strong center back, which I know very well through my time in Hoffenheim. He has a very good two-man lead and player opening. He was one of the best defensive players at this year’s African Cup. ”
