Official: Luzern Sign Daniel Gygax From Nuernberg

After a difficult time abroad, Gygax has decided to return home...

Swiss international forward Daniel Gygax has committed his future to Luzern after a difficult campaign with Nuernberg, signing a deal with his homeland club that will keep him shackled to them until at least June 30, 2014.

Having joined Nuernberg in the summer of 2008, Gygax, who previously played in France with Lille and Metz, has played 30 times for the Bundesliga club, finding the net on just two occasions, though he did manage to lay on seven more goals for team-mates.

The 28-year-old mustered a meagre 10 league appearances last season in Germany’s top flight, and he didn’t feature at all in the league run-in.

A World Cup squad member with the Swiss national side in 2006, Gygax’s career has stalled somewhat since those heady days and he will not be involved in the Schweizer Nati side that travels to South Africa this summer.

At Luzern, he will team up with international team-mate Hakan Yakin, who will make the trip to the southern hemisphere this summer.

Gygax, who has never been a prolific scorer, is due to start training with die Leuchten on June 14, according to the Swiss club’s official website.
