Bundesliga outfit Stuttgart have completed the signings of PSV goalkeeper Przemyslaw Tyton and former Paderborn midfielder Lukas Rupp.
Three wins from their final three games saw Stuttgart leap off the bottom of the table to safety, and they have set about strengthening their squad in an attempt to ensure they avoid another difficult season.
Tyton has agreed a two-year deal with the club after finding himself surplus to requirements at Eredivisie champions PSV, the 28-year-old spending the previous campaign on loan at Elche.
“We have closely monitored him [Tyton] and that gave us a comprehensive picture of his abilities,” said sporting director Robin Dutt.
“Our goalkeeping coach Andreas Menger was fully involved in the process, and he is convinced that Przemyslaw possesses all the skills to survive in the Bundesliga.”
Rupp has agreed a contract until 2018 after being released by Paderborn following their relegation, the midfielder having scored four goals in 31 league Bundesliga appearances.
