Defender Leon Andreasen has joined Bundesliga strugglers Mainz on loan from Werder Bremen in a bid to strengthen their squad.
The 23-year-old, who joined Bremen from Aarhus in 2005, had failed to land a regular place under coach Thomas Schaaf and now aims to pick up match practise at the Bruchweg Stadion.
Mainz are currently bottom of the Bundesliga and have picked up a mere 11 points in 17 games.
The club have the option of extending Andreasen's loan stint for a further year should he make an impression.
Meanwhile Mainz veteran midfielder Christof Babatz has left the club to join Bundesliga Zwei outfit TuS Koblenz.
