Zwyssig's transfer was prematurely announced by the Austrian club in mid May, while St Gallen were still fighting to defend their Swiss league title. Claiming that he didn't want to disrupt the team, Zwyssig refused to comment until after the championship had been lost to Grasshoppers Zurich.

This weekend, though, rumour became fact with the 30-year-old player signing a four-year contract with Tirol. St Gallen are set to make just SFr 300,000 from the deal.

Zwyssig is the second member of St Gallen's championship winning side to switch to the Austrian league. At the end of last year, the club's top striker Charles Amoah, joined Sturm Graz for a transfer fee of around SFr five million.
