In a surprise move this evening, Brook Street paid German Liga VI side Geggo Euthers £1.224M to secure the services of Chilean teenage winger Abel Soffia.

“I’m absolutely delighted to get Abel”, said a very happy Arjen Bogaert after the news broke. “We’ve got ourselves the best Under-20 winger in Chile, and I’m amazed he’s never been capped by his country. We’ll certainly make sure he’s on their radar although he’s not got long left at the Under-20 level”.

He continued, “Abel is due here in the early hours and will meet up with the rest of the team at training tomorrow”.
