Hoffenheim have confirmed the signing of Algeria’s Ishak Belfodi on a four-year deal from Standard Liege.
The striker will continue in the German Bundesliga after securing a permanent deal with Julian Nagelsmann's side until June 2022.
The 26-year-old enjoyed season-long loan with Werder Bremen where he scored six goals in 29 appearances across all competitions.
Belfodil becomes the second player to join the Rhein-Neckar-Arena outfit, set to play in the Uefa Champions League next season after they finished third in the German top-flight.
“Following the signing of Leonardo Bittencourt, TSG Hoffenheim have completed their second piece of summer business. Algeria international Ishak Belfodil has joined the club and signed a contract running until 30th June 2022,” the club tweeted.
