FK Austria Wien coach Frenkie Schinkels has added an international defender to his squad with the capture of Johannes Ertl from SK Sturm Graz.
The 23-year-old signed a two-year-deal with the Austrian champions just a month after making his debut for the national team against Hungary. Wien sporting manager Peter Stöger said: "Ertl is tall player with a strong fighting spirit who can play on the right wing and also in central defence. He has developed very well in recent years and is a paradigm of our strategy: young and dynamic." Having been knocked out by SL Benfica in UEFA Champions League qualifying, Austria face Legia Warszawa in the UEFA Cup first round on 14 and 28 September.
