Defender Per Nilsson joins Nuremberg
Swedish defender Per Nilsson has joined Nuremberg from
Bundesliga rival Hoffenheim on a three-year contract.
Nuremberg said Monday that the two clubs agreed not to disclose
details of the 27-year-old player’s transfer.
Nilsson said he wants more playing time and sees “better
prospects of that in Nuremberg.”
Nuremberg narrowly avoided relegation from the top division this
year. It finished third from bottom and salvaged its top-flight
status in a playoff against second-division Augsburg.
