Gebre Selassie joins Bremen

Werder Bremen announced the signing of Czech Republic defender Theodor Gebre Selassie on Friday, inking the former Liberec man to a four-year contract.

Gebre Selassie enjoyed a strong showing at Euro 2012 with the Czechs before his team was knocked out in the quarterfinals by Portugal on Thursday.

The move is reported to have cost Bremen around $2.5 million.

"We are pleased that we were able to convince Theodor to come here despite a multitude of offers," Bremen's general manager Klaus Allofs told the club's official website. "He is a very talented right back who has made a good impression at the European Championship."

The 25-year-old helped Liberec win the Gambrinus Liga last season and he becomes the seventh new signing for manager Thomas Schaaf this summer.
