Bundesliga - Bremen sign Swiss star Affolter


Werder Bremen have completed the signing of Switzerland international Francois Affolter from Young Boys.
The 20-year-old defender has joined Bremen on loan until December 2012 but the German club will then have the option to sign him on a permanent deal.
Affolter passed his medical on Wednesday morning and arrives as cover for the injured Naldo and Sebastian Proedl.
"We are very happy that Francois can join us immediately and we are certain that he will also help us in the short term," general manager Klaus Allofs said.
Coach Thomas Schaaf added: "He is technically well trained, is very quick and has a good overview. He has a certain calmness with the ball. He is a younger player with a lot of potential."
Affolter came through the academy at Young Boys and represented Switzerland at the European Under-21 Championships last summer.
He has also earned four caps with Switzerland's senior national side.
