FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) -- Hoffenheim has signed Bosnia-Herzegovina defender Ermin Bicakcic from demoted Bundesliga rival Eintracht Braunschweig.
Hoffenheim says Bicakcic signed a three-year contract.
The 24-year-old player is on the preliminary World Cup squad of Bosnia-Herzegovina.
Hoffenheim sporting director Alexander Rosen says Bicakcic will "add stability" to the team's defense. Hoffenheim conceded 70 goals this season, the second worst in the Bundesliga.
