Specifically: The 19-year-old South Korean Hyunju Lee is committed.
FC Bayern had already loaned the attacking midfielder from the South Korean first division club FC Pohang Steelers in January – for a year with an option to buy.
Bayern now took that option early.
Lee receives a contract at Säbener Strasse in Munich until June 2025.
Campus manager Jochen Sauer explained in a club announcement on the club website: "Lee made a very good impression on us in the good six months.
We are convinced of him in terms of sport and have therefore decided to sign him firmly early on.”
