Mario Gotze has joined Eredivisie side PSV Eindhoven on a two-year deal.
Gotze became a free agent last season after leaving German side Borussia Dortmund after his contract expired.
PSV confirmed the deal for the 28-year-old attacking midfielder after he was shortly seen at the Philips Stadion to undergo his medical on Tuesday.
The German attacking midfielder who scored the winning goal in the 2014 World Cup final against Argentina said he chose PSV ahead of numerous offers.
Gotze told the club’s website: “I had a lot of offers this summer but I am a man of feeling and make my own decisions.
“I feel I am very ready for a different challenge and I am confident that this should be a very comfortable transition for me.
“I kept on training and got myself fit for the new adventure. I am looking forward to joining my new team-mates for full training and preparing myself for the upcoming fixtures.”
John de Jong, PSV sporting director revealed how head coach Roger Schmidt managed to convince Mario Gotze to join them.
He said: “Mario became interested after our head coach Roger Schmidt had gotten in touch with him.
“And in the end he proved to be the godsend we had hoped for. We are delighted he has signed a contract with PSV. We are very proud.”
