Bayern sign Swiss talent Shaqiri



Bayern Munich have signed Switzerland forward Xherdan Shaqiri from FC Basle on a four-year contract commencing this summer to boost their frontline, the club said on Thursday.

"We are delighted to have signed one of Europe's most sought-after talents with Xherdan Shaqiri," said sports director Christian Nerlinger in a statement.

The pint-sized 20-year-old, who will officially join from July 1, signed a deal until 2016.

"Xherdan will strengthen our team from next season with his football intelligence and dribbling", said Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes.

"I have been watching him for some time and I am convinced he can become an important player for the club."

Bayern take on Shairi's Basle in their Champions League round of 16 later this month.
