Paris St Germain have completed the signing of highly-rated German defender Thilo Kehrer from Schalke 04 on a five-year deal, the Ligue 1 club announced Thursday.
PSG did not provide financial details of the transfer but media reports said the French champion had paid 37m euros ($42m) for the versatile 21-year-old.
"Everyone in Europe knows how strong and exciting the Paris Saint-Germain project is and I couldn't think of a better club for me to continue my progression and reach my objectives," Kehrer told the club's website.

Big loss for Schalke, but a wise signing for PSG. They’ll now have a brilliant defence for years to come, rather than patching over problems with short-term solutions like Jerome Boateng. pic.twitter.com/zMgW2wD5q7
Kehrer has four goals in 59 appearances in all competitions for Schalke. He played an important role as the club finished runners-up to Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga last season.
Kehrer also helped Germany lift the Euro U-21 title in Poland last year.
