Nigeria international Anthony Ujah has rejoined German Bundesliga club 1.FSV Mainz 05.

The club has announced that the striker had signed a three-and-a-half-year deal on Wednesday.

In July, 2016, German side Werder Bremen sold Ujah to Chinese club Liaoning Whowin where he scored 10 goals in 39 Super League games.

Rouven Schröder, Mainz's Sports Director, state that they are happy to have re-signed the 27-year-old when speaking on the club's official website.

"Anthony Ujah is an athletic, determined and strong attacker who has proved his qualities at the Bundesliga level and adds real value to our squad, and he is a great character and will not be due to his Mainz past. We need to make sure that he has decided on a future at Mainz 05," he said.

Ujah, who was on the books of Mainz between 2011 and 2013, is looking forward to playing for the Rhineland-Palatinate side again.

"I am very happy that I return to Mainz because I have only good memories of my time there, I am looking forward to the Bundesliga as well and I want to help the team from the second half of the season to reach," he said.

The marksman scored twice in 12 league appearances for Mainz, before joining 1.FC Koln.
