Uwe Rösler's Flingeraner currently ride a five-game-winning streak (and seven-match-unbeaten run) in German Bundesliga Two. The positive run pushes the 2019/20-Bundesliga-relegated side to fifth place in the table, only two points off an automatic promotion place.

The team looking to challenge other promotion contenders Hannover 96, Greuther Fürth, Holstein Kiel, VfL Bochum, and Hamburger SV now obtains a presumed big boost in attack with the procurement of Bundesliga veteran Felix Klaus.  

The 28-year-old Klaus brings with him the experience associated with 15 goals in 166 total Bundesliga appearances. He also tallied ten times in two seasons in the second division with Fürth.

Klaus found himself sparsely used in his two-plus seasons with Germany's green company team. Had the VfL qualified for European club competition this year, head-coach Oliver Glasner might have utilized him more in the Europa-league fixtures.

The versatile attacker made just eight appearances across all competitions this season. He earned only one league start. 

Kicker reports that details of the six-month-loan arrangement (with a purchase option) will be announced on Thursday. 

The magazine also reports that Klaus agreed to a significant pay-cut in order to move to a club with better prospects for playing time.
