Originally, Rapp had already agreed to a joint collaboration with “Lilien”, the Darmstadt-based company, that would have gone as far as possible to transfer the player previously on loan from 1. FC Union. But when the pace of negotiations between the start and SV Werder accelerated a few weeks ago, plans for strict compliance were halted.
On Tuesday, Rap Darmstadt finally canceled, in order to sign a contract in Bremen on Thursday. The fee for a flexible professional, who comes from the youth of 1899 Hoffenheim, should be in the lower six-figure range. In the union he was under contract for another year.
At Darmstadt, the centre-back was transformed into a defensive midfielder, starring with a double-six last season alongside Victor Balsson (Schalke 04). The central position in front of the defense was already considered Werder’s problem area last season, after Davy Klassen was sold to Ajax Amsterdam for financial reasons after the start of the Bundesliga season.
