After being benched from HellRaisers earlier today, Czech AWPer Tomáš "oskar" Šťastný is set to join German Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team mousesports, sources close to both the player and the team tell ESPN.

While it's currently uncertain exactly who on the mousesports lineup he may replace, sources say that he was originally signed to replace Chris "chrisJ" de Jong. However, due to chrisJ's recent revigorated performances, it's likely that if oskar becomes a part of the starting lineup, it will be in place of Johannes "nex" Maget.

Oskar currently has contracts with both HellRaisers and mousesports, with the mousesports contract set to begin following the expiration of his HellRaisers agreement. Sources say that contract ends at the end of September, lining up with the one-year anniversary of his time with HellRaisers on Oct. 6, 2015.

As a result of his actions, HellRaisers dismissed him from its starting Counter-Strike lineup. Furthermore, the team said, in a news release on its site, that its members became aware of Oskar's forward contract around half a year ago, putting pressure on the team's environment. It says that replacing Oskar will help alleviate that pressure.

"I hope he will succeed in his future esports career," HellRaisers team manager Maxim Bednarsky said in the release. "Oskar will remain on the team as a streamer until the end of his contract. Ivan 'Johnta' Shevtsov, the acting coach of team HellRaisers, will be the one looking for a fifth player."

Instead of buying out Oskar, mousesports will wait until the contract expiration date, unless anything changes from this point. HellRaisers currently claims he will remain a part of the organization until his contract expiration.

Mousesports did not respond to a request for comment on this report.
