Kevin Trapp joins PSG from Eintracht Frankurt on five-year deal until 2020
Paris Saint-Germain have signed German goalkeeper Kevin Trapp from Eintracht Frankfurt for a reported fee of around €10 million.
Trapp, 25, who kept five clean sheets in 22 Bundesliga appearances last season, will provide competition for Salvatore Sirigu and Nicolas Douchez for the French champions.
PSG announced on their official website that Trapp had signed a five-year contract on Wednesday -- his 25th birthday -- and was immediately heading to Thaya in Austria to join his new teammates for preseason training.
Trapp began his professional career with Kaiserslautern before joining Eintracht Frankfurt in 2012 for a reported fee of €1.5m. He played 114 Bundesliga games and was under contract at Eintracht until 2019.
Former PSG keeper Gregory Coupet had warned the club they risked serious dressing room unrest by signing Trapp, saying: "What state is it going to put Salvatore Sirigu and Nicolas Douchez into with the arrival of a third goalkeeper?
"If they had brought in Petr Cech, it would have been clear for everyone. With this, they're going to create an incredible mess."
Eintracht Frankfurt have already signed Austrian Heinz Lindner from Austria Vienna but are looking to bring in another No. 1 keeper.

The Bundesliga club's CEO Heribert Bruchhagen told Sport1: "I can't comment on our future goalkeeper yet. Our coach Armin Veh will take his time to consider several candidates."
Bruchhagen also confirmed an interest in Borussia Dortmund's Roman Weidenfeller, who is linked with an exit at BVB since Dortmund signed Swiss international Roman Burki from Freiburg.
Bruchhagen added: "Weidenfeller is a good goalkeeper, but I have my doubts whether it is realistic to sign him. The salary level at Dortmund is different to ours."
Sport1 has linked Frankfurt with Bayern's Munich's current third-choice third keeper Tom Starke, as well as Jens Grahl of Hoffenheim.
