Guardado revels in Leverkusen move

31 January 2014 07:39

Andres Guardado has made the switch from Spain to Germany, joining Bayer Leverkusen on loan until the end of the season.

The Valencia left-sided midfielder is moving to Leverkusen with a view to penning a permanent deal come mid-year, pending his form in the Bundesliga.


The 27-year-old Mexico international could debut as early as Saturday against Stuttgart, and said he has always held German football in high regard.


"The Bundesliga has a fantastic reputation in Spain," Guardado said.


"It's something special for me now to be able to play in this great European league having played in the Primera Division.


"Bayer have been a top side in German football for many years and they have also been a force in the Champions League.

"I'm therefore pleased that the transfer has worked out. This offer from Leverkusen was a great chance for me to start something new."


Bayer sporting director Rudi Voller was thrilled his side would be aided by the experience of the 99-capped international Guardado.


"Andre Guardado is a very experienced player," Voller said.


"Given his versatility, Andres fits the bill precisely for what we were after. We are convinced he will give our team a further boost."
