Schrock was born in Germany and spent his entire career in his homeland, but qualified to play for Philippines through his mother and eventually opted to play for the Azkals and won his first cap in 2011.
He began his career at Greuther Furth and remained there until 2012, when he then signed for Hoffenheim after helping his original club gain promotion to the German top flight.
The versatile 26-year-old, who is comfortable playing at full-back and in midfield, however struggled to force his way into the starting XI at the Rhein-Neckar Arena in what turned out to be a trying campaign for his side, as they narrowly avoided the drop after beating Kaiserslautern 5-2 on aggregate in the relegation playoffs.
However, Schrock will find himself playing European football in the 2013/14 season after it was confirmed on Thursday that he has signed for Frankfurt, who qualified for the Europa League playoff round after finishing seventh in the Bundesliga last term.
It has been revealed that he has put pen to paper to a two-year contract but the transfer fee involved has not been disclosed, and his new coach Armin Veh revealed his versatility was one of the reasons the club decided to move for Schrock.
"We were already interested in Stephan Schrock last year because he can play in a variety of positions," he said on the club's official website.
"We are pleased that the transfer has now been completed."
Schrock is regarded as one of the best players in Southeast Asia and recently played a key role in helping the Azkals qualify for the 2014 AFC Challenge Cup.
