Midfielder Melvyin Lorezen has completed a move to join Dutch Eredivisie side ADO Den Haag.

The Ugandan-cum German footballer who has been plying his trade at German Bundesliga side Weder Bremen agreed a deal on Wednesday to cross to Holland on a two year contract agreement.

The lanky winger who can also play as a forward had little playing time at Werder Bremen making just 14 appearances.

In May last year, Lorezen was summoned to the Uganda cranes team and played in a friendly game against Zimbabwe in Bulawayo but since then he has not made up his mind on whether to play for Uganda or Germany at the senior level.

Lorenzen joined SV Werder Bremen in 2013 from Holstein Kiel. He made his Bundesliga debut on 5 October 2013 against VfB Stuttgart.

He replaced Eljero Elia after 88 minutes in a 1–1 draw in Stuttgart.

On December 13, 2014, Lorenzen played his first Bundesliga match as part of the starting lineup and scored in a 3–3 draw against Hannover.

On January 28 2015, Lorenzen sustained an injury to the meniscus of his right knee before undergoing surgery two days later.

Lorenzen had his first appearance of the 2015–2016 seasons in Werder’s 0–1 home defeat to Bayern Munich on 17 October 2015 before being substituted after 59 minutes.

He was released by Werder Bremen after playing for the reserves in the 2016–17 season. In his time at the club, he made a total of 14 Bundesliga appearances scoring one goal.

Lorenzen was born in London, England to a Ugandan father and a German mother. His surname comes from his mother.

His father is called Drake Mugisa. In 2016, he was called up to the Ugandan national team and made his debut in a friendly 2–0 loss to Zimbabwe on  May 31, 2016.
