Reports: Freiburg find internal replacement for Flekken

According to reports, Noah Atubolu will become Freiburg's new number one when Mark Flekken leaves the club.
Bild and Sky Germany report that SC Freiburg are not planning to sign a replacement for Mark Flekken, who is said to be close to joining Brentford FC.

Instead, the Bundesliga club will reportedly rely on 20-year-old Noah Atubolu to become their new first-choice goalkeeper.

Atubolu has made three appearances for Freiburg this season and has been touted as Flekken's successor for some time.

"With Noah, a German U21 international, we have the next strong man in the back. We are prepared," Freiburg sporting director Jochen Saier said on Sunday.
