Per a release from FCBayern.com, Bayern Munich has signed 17-year-old winger Mamin Sanyang from TSG Hoffenheim. Sanyang is expected to help bolster the Bayern Munich U-19 squad, which will likely see some roster turnover as players are promoted or depart.

In what can be described as yet another move to create organizational depth, the Bavarians see Sanyang as an impact player at the U-19 level according to campus manager Jochen Sauer.

“Mamin is an extremely fast and dangerous outside player,” Sauer said. “We see it as an ideal reinforcement for our U-19 team and are very happy that he will wear the Bayern jersey in the future.”

Sanyang’s latest move might be the biggest jump he has made in soccer, but the player made the big move from Gambia to Germany with his family as a 10-year-old. With another talented winger in the youth system, Bayern Munich is clearly committed to further enhancing the depth within the youth ranks.
