Cape Town - Andrej Kramaric has ended an unsuccessful stay in England by signing a permanent deal with Hoffenheim from Premier League champions Leicester.
The Croatian international made just two appearances under Foxes boss Claudio Ranieri during the first-half of their title-winning season before joining German side on a six-month loan in January.
The Sinsheim outfit had expressed a desire to keep Kramaric after he scored five goals in 15 outings to help Julian Nagelsmann's side stave off relegation from the Bundesliga.
They had hoped to conclude negotiations before Euro 2016, where the 24-year-old striker will represent Vatreni in the France spectacle, and got their wish after he put pen to paper on a four-year contract at the Rhein-Neckar-Arena.
Upon signing his deal, Kramaric told the club's official website: "I was impressed with how the side developed and really enjoyed my time here. They put a lot of faith in me and the system catered to my strengths."
Hoffenheim sporting director Alexander Rosen added: "Andrej is a fantastic player. He's a natural goal scorer but links up with his team-mates well."
