Rapid reinforce with double signing

UEFA Cup contenders SK Rapid Wien have begun their recruitment drive, signing György Korsos and Eldar Topic.

Korsos contract
Hungarian international Korsos, a 27-year-old midfield player, leaves SK Sturm Graz after five seasons with Rapid's Austrian Bundesliga rivals and has signed a two-year contract. Topic, meanwhile, rejoins Rapid from third-division side SC Krems. The 20-year-old has agreed a two-year deal with the option of a third term at the club where he started his career.

Destination Europe
Rapid finished fourth in the top flight in 2003/04, and claimed a place in the UEFA Cup after champions Grazer AK defeated second-placed FK Austria Wien in the Austrian Cup final.
