Czech Republic defender Theodor Gebre Selassie has completed a move to SV Werder Bremen following the end of his nation's UEFA EURO 2012 campaign.
The right-back has signed a deal running until June 2016 after leaving Czech champions FC Slovan Liberec for an estimated €2m. Gebre Selassie, 25, played every minute of his side's four matches in Poland and Ukraine as they topped Group A but then lost 1-0 to Portugal in Thursday's quarter-final.
Bremen coach Thomas Schaaf, whose team finished ninth last season, said: "Everyone saw his performances during the EURO. His willingness to go into challenges and his running, and he is an attack-minded defender, those are the things that stood out."
Gebre Selassie, also a Czech title winner in 2007/08 with SK Slavia Praha, added: "The decision to join Werder Bremen is definitely the right one. Werder are a club with a lot of stability and tradition, they always set their goals very high. I want to follow up a successful season with Liberec by playing well for Bremen."
