German club Karlsruhe signs American keeper Robles

German second-division club Karlsruhe has signed American

goalkeeper Luis Robles on a two-year contract.

Karlsruhe said late Sunday that Robles, who was at

Kaiserslautern last season, had joined but gave no further details

of the transfer.

The 26-year-old Robles has played 21 matches in Germany’s second

division. He said he developed a good impression of Karlsruhe after

spending a few days training with the club.
