Former Germany international Heiko Westermann has joined Austria Vienna, shortly after Ajax announced it had terminated the defender’s contract which ran through 2018. Austria Vienna, runner-up in the domestic league last season, says the 33-year-old Westermann has signed a two-year contract. Austria Vienna coach Thorsten Fink says “such an experienced player will improve our defense for sure. With his attitude and experience he will definitely be able to help our young team.” Westermann previously played for Betis, Hamburg, Schalke, Bielefeld and Fuerth, and scored four goals in 27 matches for Germany from 2008-14.
