Leipzig signs highly-rated Scotland midfielder Oliver Burke

BERLIN (AP) Promoted Bundesliga side Leipzig signed highly-rated Scotland winger Oliver Burke from Nottingham Forrest on Sunday.

Burke agreed a five-year deal to 2021 with the German side.

"Burke is an outstanding 19-year-old talent with a huge amount of potential that hasn't played for the Scottish first team for nothing. He fits with out philosophy," Leipzig sports director Ralf Rangnick said.
