Bayer Leverkusen have sealed the signing of 16-year-old youngster Jardell Kanga from Swedish side Brommapojkarna. The young forward will play for Leverkusen's U19 side.


"Jardell Kanga will strengthen our U19s right away," said Bayer 04 Leverkusen academy manager Thomas Eichin.

"For his age, he has already gained a lot of experience in senior football. In addition, Jardell is capable of scoring goals, is fast and can be used in several positions offensively."

Last year, the 16-year-old forward scored five goals and provided one assist in 24 games for the Swedish second division side.
