Deyverson is on the move to La Liga, transferring to Levante UD from CF Belenenses Lisbon after the Brazilian attacker failed to make his mark in Köln during his loan to the FC for last season’s Rückrunde.
When Deyverson arrived in the winter transfer window, hopes were high he would be able to help spur offensive production for one of the Bundesliga’s lowest-scoring sides. Some went as far as to suggest his purchase-option should be triggered before he’d logged even two hours of playing time for the effzeh.
The highlight of Deyverson’s time came in early March, when he scored Köln’s only goal in their 2:1 DFB Cup loss to SC Freiburg and then found the net again five days later in a 4:2 home victory over Eintracht Frankfurt, in what was his first start since joining the club.
The goal against Frankfurt was the last he’d score for the effzeh, allowing him to be remembered for his on-field theatrics more than for helping boost the goal-production efforts in the Cathedral City.
Levante has paid a reported €2 million to acquire Deyverson from the Portuguese side.
