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.

Challenge

"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."
