Berlin, June 19 (IANS) Berlin strengthened their midfield with the signing of Bayern youngster Mitchell Weiser, the “Hertha” said.
Hertha Berlin wrapped up the first summer transfer as Mitchel Weiser joined from the German record champions. The 21-year-old midfielder inked a three-year deal, which keeps him at Berlin until June 2018, reported Xinhua news agency.
