The Holland international has been linked with the club for a few weeks now but it seemed the moment had passed for a transfer, especially after Reds manager Kenny Dalglish said Babel was staying put.
But a statement on the English Premier League’s official website confirmed that Babel would indeed be joining Hoffenheim.
"Ryan Babel has agreed a move to TSG 1899 Hoffenheim. The Dutch international will fly to Germany tomorrow to finalise the deal,” it read.
"The move comes six days after Liverpool accepted a bid for the 24 year old striker from the Bundesliga outfit."
Babel will be hoping a fresh start and new environment are the changes he needs to resurrect his career which seemed to be flailing at Anfield.
