Andre "nooky" Utesch is on the verge of joining mousesports after leaving Torqued.
The news comes just days after the former CS:Source team went freelance following the shutdown of mTw because of the organisation's financial problems.
The team, who went under the temporary name Torqued, also confirmed the additions of Scandinavian duo Andreas "MODDII" Fridh and Lasse "stingeR" Midstue, and their results in ESEA-Open, in which they sit second, with eight victories from nine matches, make them look like a sure bet for the Invite division next season.
But Torqued have now been left with a place to fill after Utesch left the team's roster on ESEA's website to join that of mousesports.
The German team have been in disappointing form of late, and the arrival of former fnatic captain Finn "karrigan" Andersen in December has done little to improve their fortunes.
mouz are currently rock bottom in ESEA-Invite, with one victory from nine matches, and are due to face leaders Ninjas in Pyjamas on Wednesday.
mousesports currently have the following six-man roster:
Finn "karrigan" Andersen
Michele "zonixx" Köhler
Manuel "approx" Zeitz
Tobias "Troubley" Tabbert
Johannes "nex" Maget
Andre "nooky" Utesch
Torqued, who remain on the lookout for a new organisation, now have the following quartet:
George "hudzG" Hoskins
Andreas "MODDII" Fridh
Joshua "steel" Nissan
Lasse "stingeR" Midstue
