Braunschweig deal for Elabdellaoui

Norwegian youth international Omar Elabdellaoui, initially on loan from Manchester City, has signed a permanent deal through to June 2015 with Eintracht Braunschweig, the newly-promoted club said Friday.

"It became pretty quickly apparent that we wanted to take up the option to buy," said the club's sporting director Marc Arnold.

Elabdellaoui, 21, has made 12 appearances since his January arrival to help Lower Saxony outfit Braunschweig into the top flight of the Bundesliga for the first time in 28 years.
