Brentford have completed the signing of German striker Nick Proschwitz from Hull City on a free transfer.
The 27-year-old has signed a one-year contract at Griffin Park with the option of a further two years with the club.
Proschwitz struggled to make his mark with the Tigers after joining them from SC Paderborn for £2.5million in July 2012.
He started just 12 games for Hull, as well as making a further 25 appearances from the bench, and scored seven goals.
He spent the second half of last season on loan at Barnsley and scored four goals in 14 Sky Bet Championship appearances.
Brentford manager Mark Warburton told his club’s official website: “We have had a long search to find the right striker that offers us quality and a variety of weaponry.
“Nick is a very experienced player. He put in some fantastic performances in Germany before his move to Hull.
“He went on loan to Barnsley at the end of last season and scored four in eight.
“He is an aerial threat and has very good technical ability. We think he will bring outstanding quality to the squad.
“We are delighted to secure him and look forward to him playing an important part this season.”
