Bundesliga outfit FC Augsburg have snapped up Estonia international Ragnar Klavan from Dutch side AZ Alkmaar.
The talented defender has penned a deal which is set to run until June 2014.
Augsburg have agreed a compensation package with Alkmaar for Klavan, as he had 12 months left to run on his contract in Holland.
The 26-year-old is delighted to be on the move and is looking forward to testing himself in the German top-flight.
Klavan told Augsburg's official website: "I am happy that the deal has gone through.
"I am looking forward to the challenge offered to me by Augsburg.
"The Bundesliga has a great reputation as one of the top leagues in Europe.
"I hope I can help Augsburg to achieve their goals next season."
Augsburg boss Markus Weinzierl added: "Ragnar Klavan is a versatile defender. He will mainly operate in the centre of the defence and is a good signing for a team like us.
"We are delighted to have signed him."
