Ghana defender Kassim Nuhu is in line to make his competitive debut for Fortuna Düsseldorf in the opening weekend of the 2019/2020 Bundesliga season.

The 24 year old who lasted the entire duration in their friendly victory against TSV Krefeld-Bockum on Tuesday could be handed a start in the league opener versus Werder Bremen on Saturday.

He joined the Fligeraners on a season long loan from rivals TSG Hoffenheim.

Nuhu’s move to Dusseldorf comes as surprise after joining Hoffenheim just last year on a five-year deal in a move from Swiss side Young Boys in a deal worth €8 million.
