Andrej Kramaric signs for Hoffenheim from Leicester City until 2020

Hoffenheim have confirmed the signing of Andrej Kramaric on a permanent basis from Leicester City.

Kramaric, 24, joined Bundesliga side Hoffenheim from Leicester on loan in January and he went on to score five goals for the club.

The Croatia international has signed a four-year contract at the Rhein-Neckar-Arena.

Kramaric joined Leicester from Rijeka in January 2015 for a fee in the region of £9 million, but he made just 15 league appearances and scored twice.

He said on Hoffenheim's official website: "I was impressed with how the side developed and really enjoyed me time here. They put a lot of faith in me and the system catered to my strengths."

Sporting director Alexander Rosen added: "Andrej is a fantastic player. He's a natural goal scorer but links up with his teammates well."
