Bundesliga new boys Fortuna Düsseldorf have completed the signing of VfB Stuttgart midfielder Matthias Zimmermann on a free transfer.
The 26-year-old signed a contract at the Esprit Arena until 2020. Zimmermann had been with Stuttgart
since 2015 and worked his way up
through the reserves to make his first-team debut in 2016.
The midfielder enjoyed 32 outings with Die Roten, scoring one goal along the way but he also suffered a cruciate ligament tear last term that kept him out of action for most of the campaign.
He was instrumental in helping the club return to the Bundesliga in the 2016-17 season and leaves Stuttgart with great memories and a desire to succeed in his new surroundings.
Wir haben wieder einen #Zimmermann! Herzlich Willkommen bei der Fortuna, Matthias Zimmermann! #f95 #gekommenumzubleiben
