Leckie delighted to join ‘fantastic’ Berlin

Australia international Mathew Leckie expressed his satisfaction at signing for Bundesliga outfit Hertha Berlin this week.

Leckie spent the past three years at fellow German side FC Ingolstadt 04, but after they were relegated from the top flight this season, the 26-year-old was eager to sign for Hertha.

The former Adelaide United player has reportedly penned a four-year contract at the club.

"I had a few offers. Hertha stood out for various reasons," Leckie said.

"Hertha is a big, fantastic Bundesliga club. They’ve been very successful over the last two seasons. Now they're playing in the Europa League.

"Additionally, Berlin is great; one of the nicest cities in Germany. I also think that Pal Dardai is a great coach, who I can learn a lot from."

The winger made 30 Bundesliga appearances for Ingolstadt this season, contributing with three assists.
