Solomon Okoronkwo had his contract terminated at Erzgebirge Aue on Wednesday, but it was soon after that he had signed for SV Sandhausen.
The 27-year-old's contract with the Violets was running out at the end of the season, though it was mutually terminated by both parties.
It wasn't long until he was signed up to another club, as Okoronkwo signed for fellow 2. Bundesliga strugglers Sandhausen.
"Solomon is a player who knows the 2. Bundesliga. He has shown us what he can do in training camp and in the training game against Rubin Kazan," said Sandhausen boss Alois Schwartz.
The four-time Nigeria international joined Aue back in 2013, making 21 appearances that year. However, chances have been limited this term and he's featured just eight times.
Okoronkwo could make his debut against seventeenth-placed St. Pauli, a win for Schwartz's side would take them seven points clear of the automatic relegation places.
