"We are very grateful to Joel for his commitment over the past few years. He has always totally identified with Bayer 04," Leverkusen managing director Simon Rolfes noted in a statement released by Bayer.
Technically property of die Werkself since 2016, Pohjanpalo actually only represented Germany's red company team in 28 competitive appearances. Five consecutive loan spells saw him work stints for Fortuna Düsseldorf, VfR Aalen, Hamburger SV, Union Berlin, and (most recently) Çaykur Rizespor in Turkey.
