Augsburg confirm Pepi capture

Ricardo Pepi's transfer from FC Dallas to FC Augsburg has been confirmed.
FC Augsburg have completed the signing of United States international Ricardo Pepi from FC Dallas.

The 18-year-old striker has signed a contract until 2026, which includes an option to extend by a further season.

"We are delighted that Ricardo has decided to join FCA despite interest from a number of top clubs around the world. We were able to provide him with a clear sporting plan for his future development that convinced him to come here," said Augsburg boss Stefan Reuter.

"We are certain that he will continue to improve here in Augsburg and that we’ll have a lot of fun together over the coming years."

Pepi, who was also linked with the likes of Wolfsburg and Bayern München, commented:

"Moving to Europe after the conclusion of the MLS season was my dream. I believe FC Augsburg and the Bundesliga will prove the perfect settings for me to gain match practice at the top level as a youngster.

"The efforts the FCA club officials put in to sign me were really impressive. As a result, I felt right away that FCA was the right club for me. I can’t wait to meet my new teammates and I want to integrate into the team as quickly as possible. I can hardly wait to get going!"
