Arminia Bielefeld have signed midfielder Thorben Marx from Bundesliga rivals Hertha Berlin.
The 25-year-old agreed a three-year deal at the Schuco Arena and will complete the move at the end of the season.
Marx has spent the whole of his career at Hertha, but was frustrated at receiving limited first team opportunities under coach Falko Gotz this season.
He will now be given the chance to prove himself at Bielefeld where he is likely to be a regular starter.
"We are delighted that Thorben has decided to make the move to East Westphalia," commented Bielefeld coach Thomas van Heesen, after announcing the news of the deal on Friday.
