Nurnberg have signed former Blackburn defender Vratislav Gresko after a successful trial.
The Slovakian international joined Nurnberg on trial at the end of last month after being released by Blackburn earlier in the summer.
Gresko impressed Nurnberg's coaching staff during his trial period and they have decided to snap him up on a permanent basis.
The former Internazionale and Parma man has signed a one-year deal with the option of another two years at Nurnberg.
Gresko has played in Germany before after a successful spell with Bayer Leverkusen six years ago.
