Bayern snap up Shaqiri

Bayern Munich have completed a deal to sign highly-rated Swiss midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri, who will join the Bundesliga giants for the start of next season.

Shaqiri passed a medical in Munich earlier this week and signed a four-year contract with Die Roten after Basel accepted a reported €10 million transfer fee for the player.

Bayern's director of sport Christian Nerlinger said: "We are delighted that we have been able to sign Xherdan Shaqiri, one of the most coveted young talents in European football."

Head coach Jupp Heynckes is looking forward to working with the 20-year-old Switzerland international next season too.

"Xherdan will strengthen our team next season with his intelligence and his dribbling skills,'' he said. "I have been watching him for a while now and am convinced that he can become an important player for FC Bayern.''

Shaqiri will get a close look of his future employers in just under a fortnight when Basel host Bayern in the last 16 of the Champions League.

Shaqiri was close to a move to Turkish side Galatasaray during the January transfer window but the deal fell through and he was subsequently linked with Manchester United.
