He is quick, and strong in the tackle."

The 23-year-old forward netted 20 goals in 36 league appearances last term.

Hannover sign Klaus

Klaus, who was part of Germany's U-21 European Championship squad, becomes the second Freiburg player to join the Reds following in the footsteps of Oliver Sorg.

Stuttgart sign Langerak from Dortmund

Mainz snap up Beister
Mainz have signed free agent Maximilian Beister on a three-year deal on Saturday. Sporting director Christian Heidel believes Beister, whose contract with Hamburger SV expired at the end of the 2014/15 campaign, will "fit in well" with Mainz's style of play, but played down talk of the 24-year-old being bought to fill Okazaki's shoes. "We have not bought him as a like-for-like replacement for Shinji Okazaki," claimed Heidel. "Maximilian Beister has played at the highest level of German football for several years. We've known him and his qualities for a while now."
Ingolstadt sign Kachunga
Ingolstadt 04 have boosted their attack ahead of the coming season with the signing of striker Elias Kachunga from relegated Paderborn. The 23-year-old, who scored six Bundesliga goals in 2014/15, has penned a four-year deal, keeping him at the Bavarian club until summer 2019. "After the disappointment of getting relegated with Paderborn it wasn't an easy decision to leave," Kachunga said. "But Ingolstadt can offer me great opportunities. I'll have the chance to keep developing, to use the experience I gained from last season's relegation battle and to achieve the club's aim of staying up."
Caicara joins Schalke
Schalke have signed Junior Caicara from Bulgarian champions Ludogorets Razgrad on a three-year contract. Apart from Brazilian citizenship, the The 26-year-old right-back has also held a Bulgarian passport for a year. Caicara won the Bulgarian Championship with Ludogorets in each of the last three campaigns, also lifting the Bulgarian Cup with his side in both 2012 and 2014. Caicara took part in last season's Champions League, playing the full duration in all six group games against Real Madrid, Liverpool and Basel.
Rupp signs for Stuttgart
Stuttgart have secured the services of Lukas Rupp from Paderborn on a three-year-deal. The 24-year-old midfielder scored four goals in 31 Bundesliga appearances for Paderborn last season but he was released after they were relegated to Germany's second tier. Three wins from their final three games enabled Stuttgart to avoid the same fate.
Borussia snap up Nico Elvedi
Borussia Monchengladbach have completed the signing of young Swiss defender Nico Elvedi from Zurich on a four-year contract. The 18-year-old made his Zurich debut last year and has also played 23 games for Switzerland's youth teams.
