On Tuesday, Eintracht Braunschweig have confirmed that Quirin Moll will join the club in the summer.
Moll's contract at Dynamo Dresden expires at the end of June, meaning he will make the move for free.
The 25-year-old defensive midfielder has been handed a two-year deal, taking him through to 2018.
Moll making his way up the pyramid
Moll has made 20 appearances for Dresden this year, as they canter towards a return to the 2. Bundesliga.
He has been one of their most consistent performers across the season, notching up an average kicker rating of 3.17.
The midfielder recently featured for the 100th time in the 3. Liga, having previously been at SpVgg Unterhaching before switching to Dynamo.
Moll has, however, never played in the second tier and this will be a new experience for him but one he will surely relish.
The tough-tackling Moll will now compete against the likes of Mirko Boland and Nik Omladic for a starting spot in the Lions' midfield.
Arnold and Moll mull over the move
Sporting director Marc Arnold commented, "Quirin caught our attention as a skilled and strong-tackling midfielder, who will increase the competition for places in that position."
He continued, "We first took notice of him last summer, so we are very happy that we have now come together and agreed on a collaboration for the next two years."
Moll, who was speaking to the club website along with Arnold, added, "I am very happy that my move to Braunschweig has worked out."
A midfield enforcer, Moll praised the talks between the parties, "The discussions I held with Marc Arnold and Torsten Lieberknecht were both enjoyable and very promising."
The midfielder concluded, "This is a fantastic new challenge for me."
