The 18-year-old frontman, a Germany youth international who has thrived with Stuttgart's Under-19s, has linked up with the Bundesliga champions

FC Bayern have completed the signing of Stuttgart striker Leon Dajaku (18) on a 4-year contract until 2022. Dajaku is initially planned for the second team but can also play for the U19s for one more year.

The 18-year-old Germany youth international has agreed a four-year contract with the Bundesliga champions.

"We're very happy Leon has chosen Bayern," said Jochen Sauer, head of the FC Bayern Campus.

"We're convinced he will make great progress at Bayern."

Dajaku scored 17 goals in 31 appearances for Stuttgart's Under-19 side last season.

He also played twice in the Bundesliga for the senior side, who were relegated after losing to Union Berlin on away goals in a play-off tie.

The hope at the Allianz Arena is that Dajaku will one day be ready to lead the line for the senior side.
