Andrej Kramaric signs for Hoffenheim from Leicester City on loan

Hoffenheim have completed the loan signing of Croatia striker Andrej Kramaric from Leicester City.

Kramaric, 24, joined Leicester from Rijeka in January 2015 for a fee in the region of £9 million.

The forward has made 15 league appearances since the move, scoring twice for the second-placed Foxes.

He now arrives at Hoffenheim ahead of this summer's Euro 2016 tournament, where Croatia face Czech Republic, Spain and Turkey.

"I hope that he can help us," coach Huub Stevens said. "He didn't really get a shot at Leicester. That was our chance to get him, and he was thrilled from the very beginning.

"He now has the chance to make the next step in Germany and win match practice for the European Championships. And if he gets it, he will also score goals for us."
