Bayer Leverkusen have signed experienced goalkeeper Tomasz Bobel on a one-year deal.

The 34-year-old keeper had been training at Leverkusen after playing for Azerbaijani outfit Neftchi Baku earlier in the year, and will be the stand-in No.2 at the BayArena as Benedikt Fernandez continues his rehabilitation.

Manager Jupp Heynckes told the club's official website: "Fernandez is yet to recover from his injury and Tomasz has done a good job on performances in training.

"I feel he will be a good addition to our team, especially in terms of his sincere character."

Leverkusen are also keen on signing German youth international midfielder Toni Kroos from Bayern Munich, who is currently on loan at the club.

Kroos has been at the BayArena since January and general manager Rudi Voller is keen to extend his stay at the club.

He told the Bild newspaper: "We will be sitting down with Bayern this winter and have new talks, but it is clearly a fact that transfers such as the switch of Arjen Robben are going to increase our chances to keep Toni at our club."
