The Filipino right-back has penned a deal until 2015 with Markus Babbel's side and has declared himself delighted with the opportunity of playing in Germany's top flight
Bundesliga outfit Hoffenheim have announced they have signed Azkals star Stephan Schrock from Greuther Furth on a three-year deal.
The Philippines international will move to the Rhein-Neckar-Arena on a free transfer, after his contract with the 2.Bundesliga leaders expires at the end of the current season.
The 25-year-old, who made his debut with the Philippines last June in a World Cup qualification match against Sri Lanka, has declared himself delighted to join the Sinsheim-based side, saying that this gives him the opportunity of taking a step to the next level.
“I'm very much looking forward to the challenge at Hoffenheim, who have made a name for themselves on their way to becoming an established side in the Bundesliga,” he was quoted as saying by bundesliga.de.
“I can take the next step in my career here.”
Schrock's signing also was praised by Hoffenheim boss Markus Babbel, who said that the Filipino right-back was a major target for his club.
“Stephan Schrock was a prime transfer target for mine. He has all the qualities that a modern day defender needs to have,” he said.
“In signing him we have gained the necessary substance and will have more alternatives in our defensive department for the future.”
