Kaiserslautern signs Polish teen

Goal-shy Bundesliga side Kaiserslautern is hoping to remedy its weakness by signing highly-regarded Poland Under-20 international Jakub Swierczok from Polish second division outfit Polonia Bytom.

The 19-year-old has signed a three-and-a-half year contract with Kaiserslautern.

Kaiserslautern is third from bottom of the Bundesliga and has scored just 13 goals, the fewest in the league.

"He is a talented player who has a nose for goal," said club president Stefan Kuntz.

"We are convinced he has the potential to make it in the Bundesliga."
