Cameroon international leaves Werder Bremen

Bundesliga new boys FC Cologne have signed experienced defender Pierre Wome from Werder Bremen. The Cameroon international, who had a brief spell with Fulham in 2002, recently admitted he would love to return to the Premier League. But he has opted to stay in Germany after Bremen decided not to extend his contract this summer following an injury-plagued season. Wome put pen-to-paper on a two-year deal with Cologne on Wednesday and arrives at the RheinEnergie Stadion on a free transfer. The Goats are confident that he will prove a valuable addition to their squad as they battle to re-establish themselves in the top flight. "Pierre Wome is just the sort of player we have been looking for," Cologne general manager Michael Meier told the club's official website. "He has international experience and will help stabilize our defensive line. He is a real leader."
