Andreas Ludwig returns to TSG

TSG Hoffenheim have re-signed Andreas Ludwig as a senior player for the U23 squad. The 27-year-old midfielder, who played for TSG between 2009 and 2014 and made 90 U23 appearances as well as six senior appearances, joins from 1.FC Magdeburg and has signed a three-year deal with the club.

"Andreas has special qualities as a footballer and can play in various attacking roles", said U23 Coach Marco Wildersinn about the man from Ulm. "As we often rotate players and play different formations, his versatility will be extremely useful for us, in addition to his experience and mentality. His wide-ranging experience as a professional footballer will make him invaluable as a mentor for the younger players."

After leaving TSG in summer 2014, Ludwig spent a year at VfR Aalen in the 2. Bundesliga before moving to FC Utrecht in the Dutch Eredivisie, where he made 47 appearances and scored four goals over two years. Last season he signed for 1.FC Magdeburg, with whom he won promotion to the 2. Bundesliga as 3. Bundesliga champions.

Youth Coordinator Dirk Mack said: "Andreas is the perfect man for this league, who also knows the club inside out and is aware of what we expect of him here. We have no doubt that at 27 years old he has the experience needed to play an effective role as a senior player along with Robin Szarka."
