Bundesliga side Hamburger SV have announced on their official website that they have signed midfielder Petr Jiracek from Wolfsburg.
The Czech international successfully completed a medical on Monday before signing a four-year deal with the Red Shorts.
“He is a running machine, possesses no fear and provides a threat in front of goal,” Hamburger boss Thorsten Fink said to club’s official website.
“He’s a quiet instigator with heart and mental strength. It’s exactly those types of players that we want.”
The 26-year-old only arrived to Wolfsburg last January from Viktoria Plzen, but despite showing a lot of potential during the six months he spent at Volkswagen Arena, the player was allowed to move on.
Jiracek has scored a total of 2 goals in 13 Bundesliga appearances for the Wolves before joining up with Czech Republic squad for the 2012 European Championship.
The attacking midfielder produced several very good performances at the tournament finals, scoring 2 goals in 4 games for the Czech Republic.
Jiracek is now considered one of the stars of the national team, with his appearance and style of play earning him comparisons with Pavel Nedved.
