You may remember that a few weeks ago, we brought you a transfer rumour concerning St. Pauli striker, Marvin Ducksch.

It all sounded great until the player was quoted as saying he’d love a move to the Bundesliga and that quickly followed with news of interest from Fortuna Dusseldorf. It seemed a done deal, with the German press reporting that Ducksch had been photographed walking through the streets of Dusseldorf, hand in hand with his girlfriend, wearing flip flops(!), sounds lovely.

A fee of 2-3m euros was widely quoted, although the St. Pauli Sporting Director, Uwe Stover was quoted as saying that he was unhappy with this and expected Marvin back with St. Pauli for training on June 24th.

It did look like a deal would still happen though, so I thought no more of it.

However, there is news this morning that Dusseldorf cannot afford to meet St. Pauli’s terms for the player, with relations clearly strained between the two parties. This comes from German daily paper

It seems as though St. Pauli want £3-4m euros for Marvin and that this is too rich for Dusseldorf, which surprises me a little. Anyway, this report suggests that deal is off but there could still be interest in the player from English team, Norwich City, which Google Translate describes as a “herb enclave”. It also suggests you would expect the wages in Norwich to be “brilliant.”

Hilarious 🙂

There could be an impasse between Ducksch and St. Pauli, so he still looks ripe for a move. Surely, having sold Josh Murphy, Norwich City could afford 3-4m euros, couldn’t they?

This is potentially still one to watch.

  • The thing that gets me re: DS was we had a equally good player on loan (no better actually) CM

    This new guy well it’s just like being a kid in the lucky dip at school fete…. high hopes but all you ended up with was saw dust & a piece of tat.

    Otbc we live in hope and leave Carrow Rd in despair.

  • I just worry we will get these lads from outside of England who will need to adjust to the championship like Vrancic had too and it might take a while also players like Stiepermann, Srbeny, Franke never really did/have. Also the fact we still need English lads to meet the criteria
