Leverkusen (Germany), Aug 26 (IANS) Mainz and Bayer Leverkusen have agreed on the transfer of midfielder Levin Oeztunali, both Bundesliga football clubs have announced.

The 20-year-old leaves Leverkusen after signing a five-year contract, which binds him to Mainz until June 2021, reports Xinhua.

“Levin Oeztunali is a highly gifted and versatile attacking midfielder who has already underlined his qualities in Leverkusen and Bremen,” Mainz sporting director Rouwen Schroeder said on Thursday.
