Three days after securing promotion to the Bundesliga, Werder Bremen are pleased to announce the signing of central defender Amos Pieper, who is arriving on a free transfer from DSC Arminia Bielefeld.

“Although he is only 24-years-old, Amos has made over 100 appearances in professional football and has gained lots of experience in the Bundesliga over the last two years. We are confident that he can make an impact straight away and we are delighted that he chose to come to Werder,” explained Clemens Fritz, Werder’s head of professional football.

Ole Werner is also delighted with the new signing: “Amos is physically strong, has the ability to play out from the back and is strong in the air. He has already proven that he can mix it with the big boys in the Bundesliga.”

As for Pieper, he didn’t need to long to make a decision when the offer from Werder came. “I felt good here and like it was the right fit immediately from my first meetings with Clemens Fritz and Frank Baumann, and it’s a feeling that continued during the talks with Ole Werner and when I put pen to paper,” he said. “There’s no doubt about it. The plans the club have set for me, and the opportunities here appealed to me right away and left me with a good feeling. That’s why I choose Werder. The photos of the promotion celebrations and what was happening in Bremen also helped to support my decision.”

The 24-year-old made 57 Bundesliga appearances for Arminia (1 goal), along with 39 second-division appearances and five in the DFB-Pokal. The former Germany U21 international spent his youth at Borussia Dortmund before moving to Bielefeld.
