Nurnberg sign Timm Klose from FC Thun

The defender signs a three-year deal with the German club after making the move from Swiss side Thun
Nurnberg have secured the services of Swiss defender Timm Klose after he signed a three-year deal with the club.

The German side have paid around €400,000 to Swiss club FC Thun for the services of the defender, who had an excellent season in the Swiss Super League, helping the promoted side to finish fifth.

"I'm really looking forward to the Bundesliga and over 40,000 spectators at Nurnberg," said Klose to Swisslook magazine.

Klose was very thankful for the time he spent at Thun, and paid tribute to his former coach Murat Yakin.

"In Thun I found an excellent environment and I have benefited enormously from Muri. I thank FC Thun for giving me confidence as a young defender."

The signing of Klose is likely to mean that Nurnberg captain Andreas Wolf will bid farewell to the club.

The long serving defender's contract is running out, and his manager and the club have so far been unable to come to an agreement regarding the veteran's future.

The Austrian media have reported that Red Bull Salzburg are interested in Wolf.
