St. Pauli today confirmed their 5th summer signing – with the capture of 20 year old defender Philipp Ziereis from SSV Jahn Regensburg. Ziereis is primarily a right-back, but can play in several defensive positions, and the club have paid a fee to secure his services. Ziereis will probably be a replacement for Avevor, who looks unlikely to stay at the club following his loan spell last season.
Azzouzi: Philip is a young, talented player who can play multiple defensive positions. He is a player with a future that will continue to evolve with us.
Philip Ziereis: When the offer came from St. Pauli, I did not think twice. I am convinced that it is the right step for me.
