Davie Selke says he rejected 'other options' to join Werder Bremen from Hertha BSC before the winter transfer window closed.

Selke, who also played for Werder earlier in his career, told reporters:

"There were other options, but I deliberately chose Werder. When I knew that it could work out, I started to get really really excited.

"We had two days of very intensive talks and I was on the Phone more than ever before in my life. When the green light came, everything went very quickly."

'The Green Whites' have signed Selke on loan until the summer of 2021 with an obligation to buy if certain conditions are met.
