Mainz today signed Czech midfielder Jan Simak from Bundesliga rivals Stuttgart.
The 31-year-old has signed a contract until June 2011 at the Stadion am Bruchweg. "Jan Simak further expands our options in attack," Mainz coach Thomas Tuchel told the club's official website. "He is a player who can directly help us."
