Sport Bild Report: Dortmund possess low-cost purchase clause for Bremen's Njinmah

Speaking to Germany's main sporting tabloid and Bremen's famed "Deichstube" website, SV Werder Bremen licensing director Clemens Fritz expressed the hope that young attacking prospect Justin Gideon Njinmah would be back in the Hanseatic City State to play for the Werder professionals next season. 

The tabloid, "Sport Bild" nevertheless reports that Borussia Dortmund have a reasonable purchase clause built into the 22-year-old's current loan contract. Die Schwarzgelben may want to hang onto the 3. Bundesliga star for relatively cheap amount of €1 million. 
SV Werder Bremen loanee Justin Gideon Njinmah has scored 11 goals and chipped in a further six assists for Borussia Dortmund II in the 3. Bundesliga this season. Though the 22-year-old didn't make all that much of an impression in his one appearance for Edin Terzic's senior team, his prolific numbers in the third-tier likely render him a player the BVB might wish to hold onto.

In recent interviews with Germany's "Sport Bild" tabloid and Bremen's "Deichstube" fan-site, SV head-of-player licensing Clemens Fritz has expressed the hope that the Hamburg-native will be back in Hanseatic green in time for next season. Njinmah's loan-agreement with Dortmund expires after the season. In the separate interviews, Fritz referred to the versatile attacker as "an incredible weapon" who has "developed superbly".

With an estimated market worth of €700,000 in the latest transfermarkt listings, Njinmah is among the most valuable players currently active in Germany's third professional footballing flight. Sport Bild reports that there is actually a purchase clause built into Njinmah's loan contract that will allow Dortmund to secure the player permanently for only €1 million.

The tabloid further reports that SV sporting director Frank Baumann has already met with counterpart Sebastian Kehl to discuss the player's future. Njinmha's own preferences will obviously play a role in whether he wishes to return to Bremen or take his chances on a much more talent-stacked club. Fritz's words effectively guarantee him a shot at regular playing time, while the depth chart in Dortmund may stymie his prospects.
