Prince Tagoe leaves Al-Ettifaq for Hoffenheim

Ghanaian striker Prince Tagoe has left Saudi Arabian club Al-Ettifaq to join German club TSG Hoffenheim.

The 22-year old has signed a three-year deal with Hoffenheim and spoke of his delight about joining such a great club.

"I'm delighted to have joined Hoffenheim, one of the most respected clubs in the world. This is a dream come true as it has always been my ambition to play for a top European club," he told BBC Sport.

"Having spoken to the manager of the club, the chief executive, my agents and other people at the club, I am excited about this move.

"I had many options with several clubs in Europe seeking to sign me on very lucrative deals.

"But I wanted to sign for a club that could guarantee me first-team action where I can continue to develop my talents," he added.

"There are many young African players who were given the chance at the club and I want to come here to fight for a position and establish myself in Europe.

"I know other players who have had the opportunity to play with Hoffenheim and they have nothing but great things to say about the club."
