"The talks were very, very good from the beginning and convinced me. I don't want to talk too much because in the end it's my performance on the pitch that counts," Kruse is quoted as saying.
"There are only three things to say: I love soccer, I'm hungry for success and I want to go to the top with SC Paderborn 07!"
added Benjamin Weber, SC Paderborn's Managing Director of Sport:
"Max's footballing qualities and goal-scoring instincts are undisputed. His leadership skills and experience at national and international level will also help us a lot".
Kruse has been a free agent since his contract with VfL Wolfsburg was terminated in November.
The 35-year-old has made 307 appearances in the Bundesliga over the years, scoring 97 goals and providing 79 assists.
