Bundesliga outfit SV Darmstadt 98 have confirmed the signing of Tunisian attacking-midfieler Anis Ben-Hatira from Eintracht Frankfurt ahead of the new season.

The 28-year-old completed his move to Norbert Meier’s side on Monday August 22nd after completing his medical and revealed his delight upon his unveiling.

“The talks with those responsible have convinced me of this task here in Darmstadt,” he told the Bundesliga’s website.

“I am very happy to stay in the Bundesliga and cannot wait to start,” he said.

In an injury-laden 2015/16 season, Ben-Hatira only managed to register 14 appearances in all competitions with Frankfurt and will don jersey number 28 for Meier’s side in the new season.
