CP Berne, who have lost their first three National League matches, have signed defender Romain Loeffel from Lugano for next season. He signed for four years.
The Neuchâtelois (30 years old) will therefore leave Ticino after four seasons spent at La Resega.
Trained in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Loeffel had erupted in Friborg-Gottéron before being part of a famous exchange of players between Friborg and Genève-Servette on the eve of the close of transfers in January 2014. He has 631 matches in National League (294 points / 84 goals).
An attacking defender, Loeffel will surely become a centerpiece of the Bernese in a power play. « Romain Loeffel is an international who will bring us a lot of experience. He provides consistent performance and will be one of the leaders in our defense, » Bernese club sporting director Andrew Ebbett said in a statement.
In addition, Bern has extended Colin Gerber’s contract. The defender will be linked to the capital club until the end of the 2022-2023 season.
