FC Augsburg confirmed the sale of defender Kevin Danso on Friday evening.
Reports earlier in the day suggested that the FCA we're set to pocket approximately €7 million including bonuses. At this time, German broadcaster Sport1 can only confirm a base transfer fee of €3.5 million. German footballing magazine Kicker reports that the base fee is actually closer to the €5.5 million range.
"We have repeatedly praised Kevin Danso's sporting abilities," Augsburg sporting director Stefan Reuter said in a statement, "He made his leap from the juniors to the senior level here and celebrated his Bundesliga debut as an 18-year-old in an FCA jersey. We would have considered him frequently for our team in the coming season. It's a shame that he sees it differently and no longer wishes to wear the FCA tricot."
Danso spent the last two campaigns out on loan at Southhampton (2019/20) and Fortuna Düsseldorf (2020/21).
The player himself has made no comment yet.
