Langerak close to Stuttgart move - reports

Socceroos goalkeeper Mitch Langerak is reportedly close to a switch in Germany.

Langerak, 26, could be about to leave Borussia Dortmund for fellow Bundesliga club Stuttgart – according to reports in Germany.

German newspaper Stuttgarter Zeitung reported that Langerak would make the move in a deal worth €2.5million.

Langerak's spot at Dortmund has been in question after new coach Thomas Tuchel brought in another shot-stopper in June.

The club announced the signing of Swiss goalkeeper Roman Burki, making it four shot-stoppers in the squad.

Langerak has made only 26 senior appearances for Dortmund since he joined the club in May 2010.

But, unusually, Langerak would be Stuttgart's second goalkeeper signing in less than a week.

Alexander Zorniger's side added Przemyslaw Tyton from PSV Eindhoven on Wednesday.

Reports suggest Langerak and Tyton would be competing for the number one spot.

Langerak would be joining former Wellington Phoenix and Melbourne Victory attacker Marco Rojas at Stuttgart, but the Kiwi is yet to make a senior appearance for the club.

Stuttgart finished 14th in the Bundesliga last season.
