1860 Munich added winger Krisztian Simon from FC Ujpest late on deadline day, tying him down to a long-term deal.

Simon had been handed a three-and-a-half year deal, keeping him at the Lions until 2018. This season, he has scored six games in seventeen games for the Hungarian side and has made a handful of appearances for the Hungarian national team.

Sporting director Gerhard Poschner was happy to finally get his man, "We have already had Krisztian in sight for a long time now and the opportunity arose to bring him here. He brings good speed and a goalscoring threat."

It's the fifth move in the last few days for 1860, as Jannik Bandowski (loan) has joined the club with Markus Steinhöfer, Bobby Wood and Yannick Stark all leaving for fellow German second division sides. 

Simon could make his debut against FC Heidenheim, when the 2. Bundesliga returns from the winter break this weekend.
