TSG 1899 Hoffenheim have completed the signing of Leonardo Bittencourt from FC Köln for a fee believed to be around €6 million, the 24-year-old will join the club when the transfer window opens.
Sporting director Alexander Rosen said: “Leonardo is a very technically gifted and agile player who is extremely hard to defend in one-on-one situations. He finds his way out of tight spaces again and again and will help us greatly when we have to go up against teams that sit back deep and defend. Leo played predominantly on the left wing in Cologne, but he was also able to play in a number of different positions. He’s already proven that he can be an above average player in the Bundesliga. We’re really looking forward to having him as a part of our squad.”
Bittencourt has signed a contract until June 2023.
