Defender Florian Hübner will leave 1. FC Union Berlin at the end of his contract in the summer and join 2.Bundesliga side 1. FC Nürnberg.
The 30-year-old moved to Köpenick from Hannover and has played an important role in cementing Union's place in the Bundesliga. Hübner played previously at Wiesbaden, Borussia Dortmund, Sandhausen, followed by the Reds before making the switch to the Stadion An der Alten Försterei.
"I always felt extremely comfortable with my family at Union right from the start and had three extremely emotional and successful years here. There were an incredible number of great moments. The first game in front of a sold-out crowd against FC St. Pauli, my goals against Duisburg and Cologne and, above all, promotion to the Bundesliga - these are things I will never forget in my life. Even though it wasn't easy for me, I've now decided to take a new challenge. Above all, I'd like to thank the many great people I've had the chance to meet here, both on and off the pitch, and wish 1. FC Union Berlin and its fans continued success," said Hübner.
"We wish Florian Hübner all the best in Nürnberg. He stands for professionalism, commitment and emotional moments. We will always associate our years together and the crowning moments of Bundesliga promotion and staying up with him," added Oliver Ruhnert, 1. FC Union Berlin's Managing Director for Professional Football.
