Excelsior have completed the signing of Celta Vigo striker Dennis Eckert on loan until the end of the season.

The 22-year-old has already been training with his new teammates and could make his debut against Feyenoord on Sunday.

Eckert told the Excelsior website, “I’m glad I’m here at Excelsior. The last 48 hours were quite hectic. My first impression of the club is very good. Of course it is all a bit smaller here than I was used to at Celta de Vigo, but everything around the club looks very professional. “

The German had spells with FC Köln and Alemannia Aachen as a youth player before he joined Borussia Mönchengladbach in 2013. He then joined Celta Vigo in 2017. He has since made ten appearances for the first team.
