Mainz have announced the double signing of Nigeria striker Anthony Ujah and Austria midfielder Julian Baumgartlinger.
It was revealed on Tuesday that Lillestrom SK had accepted a bid for Ujah, but Mainz boss Thomas Tuchel has also captured Baumgartlinger from FK Austria Vienna.
Ujah has signed a four-year-deal at Mainz's new coface-Arena, while 23-year-old Baumgartlinger has also committed to a deal until 2015.
Mainz general manager Christian Heidel told his club's official website: "We are happy to have sealed the transfer of Julian Baumgartlinger, he is a perfect fit.
"He is a youngster, but still he has impressed us as a leader on the pitch and has every chance to develop further as a player.
"He has football skills and is also a nice lad."
On the capture of Ujah, Heidel added: "We are delighted to have signed a starlet who has been on the radar of many other clubs at the same time.
"We are looking forward to having Anthony Ujah play for our club. He is a very talented striker."
