The Austrian midfielder is reunited with his former coach at the Violas, Daniel Meyer, having struggled for games under his successor Dirk Schuster.
Wydra, who was released by Aue earlier in the month, has signed a two-year contract at the Eintracht-Stadion, with sporting director Peter Vollmann having already confirmed the club’s interest last week.
The 26-year-old will offer plenty of 2. Bundesliga experience for die Löwen, having played 93 times at this level with Aue, Bochum and Paderborn.
“With Dominik Wydra we are happy to welcome another player with second division experience to our ranks,” said Vollmann, who noted the player’s ability to play in a back three as well as in defensive midfield.
“I am extremely looking forward to the new assignment,” said Wydra himself. “In the next two years, I want to go full throttle and do everything that the season ends successfully and that we secure survival as early as possible.
