South African starlet Tashreeq Matthews has left Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund to join Swedish club Varbergs BoIS FC.
The 19-year-old takes on his third loan spell since joining Dortmund in 2018, having already spent time at Utrecht in Holland and Swedish side Helsingborg.
Varbergs head coach Joakim Persson spoke highly of the 19-year-old saying: ‘He has an extremely high maximum level… Tashreeq is young, so we will see how he can keep that level for a whole season. There is a lot to bring in a new team, and not least a new city.
‘The whole team has a low middle age, so we hope that it will be good for him with many players of the same age around him, and that he will quickly get into the gang. But he has a lot of potential, so it will be very exciting and see what we can get out of him.’
Meanwhile, Varberg are also expected to complete the signing of another South African youngster Keanin Ayer.
