Mönchengladbach - Borussia Mönchengladbach have announced the signing of Bayer 04 Leverkusen and Swiss international forward Josip Drmic on a four-year deal.

The 22-year-old, who has scored 23 goals in 58 outings since moving to the Bundesliga with 1. FC Nürnberg in July 2013, will wear the no9 shirt next season.

'Quick and dangerous'

"We were interested in signing Josip Drmic last year, but on that occasion he opted for Leverkusen," explained Gladbach sporting director Max Eberl. "We're delighted that everything has now fallen into place. Josip is a quick and dangerous attacker and is going to fit in well."
