Bundesliga newcomers Eintracht Frankfurt have added another striker to their squad by signing Olivier Occean from newly-promoted Greuther Furth for an undisclosed fee.

The 30-year-old Canadian striker was the 2. Bundesliga's joint-top goalscorer last season with 17 goals, having netted 16 times the previous campaign for Kickers Offenbach, but this will be his first season in the top flight.

"He is a powerful striker who is excellent in the air and this makes Olivier exactly the right kind of player coach Armin Veh wanted," said Eintracht's director of sport, Bruno Hubner. "We are delighted that, with Occean, we have been able to give our coach another of the players he wanted."

Occean has been capped 23 times by Canada, scoring five goals, and he is the seventh new arrival at the club, joining Martin Lanig from Cologne, Stefan Aigner (1860 Munich), Kevin Trapp (Kaiserslautern), Stefano Celozzi (Stuttgart), Bastian Ocipka (Bayer Leverkusen) and Takashi Inui (Bochum).
