HSV signs Andras Nemeth

The 20-year-old centre forward joins HSV from KRC Genk and signs until summer 2026. 

Reinforcement for the attack: Hamburger SV has signed centre-forward Andras Nemeth (20), the third addition in this year's winter transfer period. The Hungarian international joins the club from Belgian first division club KRC Genk and has signed a contract with the club until the summer of 2026. "Andras is a modern centre-forward who stands out not only for his finishing quality but also for his understanding of the game. We already looked into him in the summer and see him as a player who has multi-layered development potential. During the talks, it was impressive to see how intensively he had engaged with HSV and our idea of the game," says HSV Sports Director Jonas Boldt about the talented striker. "I like the way HSV plays - with up-and-coming players and dominant offensive football. That, together with the good conversations I had with the coach, absolutely convinced me. I want to be a part of it and I can't wait to meet the fans in this incredible stadium," said a delighted Nemeth, who successfully completed his medical check at the UKE Athleticum, then signed his contract at the Volksparkstadion and will already start training this morning.

Andras Nemeth was born in Cape Town on 9 November 2002 to a Hungarian father and a South African mother. The 1.87 metre tall centre-forward made his footballing beginnings in his father's homeland with Hungarian club Vasas SC (2010-15), before continuing his career at youth level in Belgium with Sporting Hasselt (2016) and KRC Genk (2016-20). In parallel, Nemeth progressed through Hungary's youth national teams since 2017 and finally made his debut for the senior side in November last year, promptly scoring his first goal for the national side in a 2-2 draw with Luxembourg. The talented striker also made his mark at club level in the men's game at a young age, playing a total of 21 competitive games for KRC Genk since the beginning of 2022, in which he was able to mark three goals and two assists. In the current season, the right-footer has played in 15 games (one goal, two assists) for the current leaders of the Jupiler Pro League. From now on, the highly talented attacker will dribble his way up to HSV and wear the number 20 - welcome aboard, Andras!
