1. FC Kaiserslautern have completed the signing of Erik Durm from Eintracht Frankfurt.


30-year-old Durm, who won the World Cup with Germany in 2014, has joined the newly-promoted 2. Bundesliga outfit on a permanent basis.

"Even though I have never played for FCK, for me it feels like coming home. FCK was the reason I started playing football," stated Durm.

"I used to go to the stadium with my parents and have never lost my sympathy for the club. I know what FCK means to the people here and I will do everything I can to make sure we play a successful season," explained the left-back.

Durm was limited to just nine games for Frankfurt last season.
