Bayern sign Vidal
Bayern Munich have confirmed the signing of Arturo Vidal from Juventus on a five-year.

The midfielder, reported to have cost up to €37 million, could make his debut in the German Supercup against Wolfsburg on Saturday. Vidal, who has 69 caps for Chile, won four consecutive Serie A titles and one Coppa Italia, as well as helping the club reach May's Champions League final, where they were beaten by Barcelona.
Di Santo moves to Schalke
Werder Bremen have confirmed that Franco Di Santo has activated a release clause in his contract to leave the club immediately, with Schalke set to sign him. The former Chelsea and Wigan forward, who joined the northern Germany side on a free transfer in 2013, still had a year left to run on his contract in Bremen. However, a predetermined release clause, reported to be in the region of €6m, meant the 26-year-old could leave at any time should a club meet the full amount.
Kuranyi joins Hoffenheim
Kevin Kuranyi, 33, has returned to German football by signing a one-year deal at Hoffenheim. The 52-times capped Germany striker joins on a free transfer from Russian side Dynamo Moscow, who he had been with since July 2010. Brazil-born Kuranyi previously enjoyed great success at Stuttgart and Schalke, claiming over 100 goals, before scoring 56 in 151 games for Dynamo.
Riether makes Schalke switch
Schalke have confirmed the signing of right-back Sascha Riether from relegated Freiburg. The German defender, 32, signed a one-year-contract until June 2016 and has the option of an additional year. Riether, who previously had two seasons in England with Fulham, played 226 matches in the Bundesliga and 66 times in the Premier League.
Gregoritsch signs for HSV
HSV have announced the transfer of striker Michael Gregoritsch from VfL Bochum. The 21 year old Austrian under-21 international has signed a four year deal and joined the squad at the training camp in Harsewinkel on Thursday. Gregoritsch scored seven times in 25 appearances for Bochum last season.
Ascues signs for Wolfsburg
Wolfsburg have signed Carlos Ascues from Peruvian outfit Melgar Arequipa. The 23-year-old defender, who can play at the heart of the back four or in defensive midfield, has signed a three-year deal with the Wolves. The details of the transfer of the Peruvian international remain undisclosed by all involved parties.
Vidal move to Bayern confirmed
Bayern Munich have reached an agreement with Juventus to sign Chile international midfielder Arturo Vidal, the German club's CEO Karl Heinz Rummenigge confirmed on Thursday. Vidal, no stranger to the Bundesliga having played for Bayer Leverkusen for four seasons until 2011, has won four straight Italian league titles and helped Juventus reach the Champions League final last season. The 28-year-old, who also helped Chile win the Copa America title for the first time on home soil earlier this month, could join up with his Bayern team-mates as early as next week, Rummenigge said.
Trochowski joins Augsburg
Augsburg have given midfielder Piotr Trochowski a one-year contract after he impressed during a trial with the Bavarians. Trochowski, 31, was a free agent after being released by Sevilla at the end of last season and he has spent the last week training with Augsburg. The contract offer includes the option of a second season. Trochowski spent the past four seasons with Sevilla, winning the Europa League twice with the Spanish side, although he only appeared a total of 59 times in the Primera Division.
Darida joins Hertha
Czech international midfielder Vladimir Darida has joined Hertha Berlin from relegated Freiburg. The 24-year-old, who swapped Czech outfit Viktoria Plzen for Freiburg in summer 2013, has signed a four-year deal. "We're really happy - Vladimir Darida is a fantastic addition to the centre of our midfield," said sporting director Michael Preetz.
