Sarpreet Singh is an offensive midfielder hailing from New Zealand, born to Indian parents. Singh signed a three-year contract with Bayern Munich following strong showings with the New Zealand national team at the 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup. He became a part of Bayern’s reserve team, who compete in the third division of German football.
Singh has, however, not been able to establish a place in Bayern’s first team. He went on loan to FC Nürnberg, but cut it short due to a lack of game time.
It was believed that Singh will be moving to Werder Bremen in this transfer window. They were reportedly in talks to sign him for a fee in the region of €300,000 to €400,000. However, an ailment in his pubic bone has poured cold water on the transfer. This problem will keep him out of action for an additional three to four months.
The Werder medical staff carefully assessed his injury. In the end, they came to the conclusion that the Kiwi would not be fit to play for the club for a prolonged period of time. As a result, they did not give the approval to sign him.
Sarpreet Singh And His Future
He returned to the Bundesliga champions for the upcoming campaign in order to undergo rehabilitation.
Now, Bayern has extended his contract. Singh previously had one year left on his deal. It was announced that Singh will join Jahn Regensburg on loan.
Singh had an unfortunate injury that prevented him from making a potentially fantastic transfer to Werder Bremen. However, now he can put his head down and look to help SSV Jahn Regensburg. Perhaps he can do enough to impress the coaches at Bayern Munich as well.
