Garra Dembele, Bulgarian Levski's former prolific striker, may return to the club quickly after he was sold to German side Freiburg in a EUR 2 M deal.

The French-Malian hitman suffers from a serious muscle injury and cannot be used by the German squad, the Bulgarian Meridian Match reports.

Besides that, Freiburg does not seem to find bidders for their flamboyant forward Pappis Cisse, whom Dembele was supposed to substitute, the media points out.

The 25-year-old Garra Dembele has been a hit in the Bulgarian football championship after Levski acquired him from Lokomotiv Plovdiv. He scored 26 goals in 24 matches in the Bulgarian championship, 8 goals in 12 Europa League matches, and 2 goals in the Bulgarian Cup tournament.

English Premiership clubs Blackburn Rovers, West Ham and Everton as well as Germany's Werder Bremen had also been reportedly interested in buying Dembele.
