Bayern Munich have won the race to sign German star Tim Borowski.
The 27-year-old is out-of-contract with Werder Bremen at the end of the season - but he has opted to leave the Weserstadion.
International Borowski will once again link up with former national coach Jurgen Klinsmann - who will take charge at Bayern in the summer.
Werder are hugely disappointed to lose Borowski - who they had hoped would sign a new long-term deal with the club.
"It's a shame," coach Thomas Schaaf said.
"We would have happily carried on working with Tim."
