Stuttgart have completed the loan signing of Hungary international midfielder Tamas Hajnal until the end of the season from Bundesliga table-toppers Borussia Dortmund.
The transfer also gives Stuttgart the opportunity to sign the player on a permanent basis at the end of the season.
Stuttgart general manager Fredi Bobic has revealed that the signing is an attempt to find more goals from midfield in the club's battle against relegation.
The former Bolton forward told Sudwest Presse newspaper: "We have decided to loan Tamas Hajnal to get a further option in attacking midfield.
"He is on loan from Borussia Dortmund and will give us more flexibility in attacking ways with his playing style. We are delighted to have him here."
Hajnal is still contracted to Dortmund until June 2012, but he was keen on a move away from Signal-Iduna-Park.
