Bayern teen Usami set for Nurnberg

Kyodo

COLOGNE, Germany — Teenager Takashi Usami has all but agreed to join Nurnberg from Bayern Munich in the summer, according to a report Tuesday in German sports newspaper Bild.

Usami, who has seen little action at Bayern since moving to the Bundesliga giants on loan from Gamba Osaka last summer, has already spoken with Nurnberg and verbally agreed to the switch on the condition that Nurnberg remains in the top flight, according to the report.

Nurnberg is currently 10th in the Bundesliga with 31 points from 26 games.

Bayern have told Usami they are not planning on extending his loan deal from Gamba but the 19-year-old is keen to continue playing in Germany.
