“We’re delighted that we’ve been able to make this transfer happen. Andrej is a forward who offers a real goal threat and can hopefully provide a new impetus to our attack,” said TSG director of football Alexander Rosen.
Kramaric is also pleased to complete the move. “I’m very excited about this chapter with TSG and the Bundesliga and want to play my part in keeping the team up.” The attacker will also be hoping to impress with Hoffenheim in order to secure a place in the Croatia squad for the European Championship this summer. He already has nine senior caps to his name, scoring three goals.
Before completing a move to Leicester City in January 2015, Kramaric caught the eye with an incredible goalscoring record in Croatia. The 1.77m-tall forward netted 55 times in 64 competitive games for top-flight side HNK Rijeka and also impressed in the Europa League, scoring five goals in six group games. The striker also had spells with Dinamo Zagreb and NK Lokomotiva before joining Rijeka.
