BERLIN, July 04 (Xinhua) -- Eindhoven's Tim Matavz agrees on a transfer to Augsburg until June 2019, the "Fuggerstaedter" said in an official statement on Friday.

Augsburg confirmed their third transfer of the week as Slovenia international striker Matavz joins the "Fuggerstaedter" for five years.

"Tim Matavz has not only probed his qualities in Eindhoven but also in the Slovenian national soccer team. We are confident that he will help our team in the Bundesliga," Augsburg' s CEO Stefan Reuter said.

The 25-year-old striker scored 44 goals in 102 matches for the "PSV" and ten goals in 28 caps for Slovenia.

"I am looking forward to this new challenge in the German Bundesliga. Its nice that I only missed a few days of the preparation, so that I can get to know my new teammates and the environment at Augsburg," Matavz said.

Augsburg finished the last season on eighth position in the Bundesliga standings.
