Eintracht Frankfurt have completed the signing of Mario Götze from PSV.

The German World Cup winner has put pen to paper on a three-year deal after Eintracht activated a release clause in his contract.

"The fact that a player like Mario Götze has chosen, with full conviction, Eintracht Frankfurt over numerous other offers speaks volumes for the outstanding image that the club has built over the past few years," commented Eintracht board member for sport Markus Krösche.

"I don’t need to say much about his footballing qualities. We’ve been lacking a player of his type. Mario’s technical ability will help our game enormously, particularly when we’re in possession against deep-lying opponents. Moreover, he can showcase his strengths in virtually any attacking position, which gives us even more tactical variability. Last but not least, he brings many years of experience at the highest international level."

Götze stated:

"I'm incredibly excited about joining Eintracht Frankfurt. This club have made remarkable progress and have started out on an exciting and ambitious path, on which I can now accompany them.

"The talks with Markus Krösche and Oliver Glasner quickly revealed that we have the same aims and ideas. This club have a great foundation. From the stadium to the fans to the city, everything is just to my liking. I’m really looking forward to my return to the Bundesliga, as well as the chance to play in the Champions League."
