Ozan Kabak has left Schalke to join TSG 1899 Hoffenheim with immediate effect. Both parties have agreed not to disclose the details of the transfer.

“It became clear that a move was the best option under the current circumstances. We are therefore pleased that we have been able to reach a transfer that suits both sides – for us on the economic front and for the player on the sporting front. The loan moves and the transfer free have created a good overall package. We thank Ozan for this commitment and we wish him all the best for the future” explained sporting director Rouven Schröder.
