The transfer fee paid to the Middle Franconian club is said to be around €4 million, which would make Leweling the second most expensive transfer in the history of the FCU. It has widely been corroborated that die Eisernen shelled out some €7.5 million for the purchase of Taiwo Awoniyi last summer.
With Awoniyi likely to depart the the club this summer, Union have once again proved themselves proactive in securing a replacement. With his performances for both club and country this year, Leweling has increased his estimated market worth to some €4.5 million.
Leweling has scored five goals and chipped in two assists this season.
