BERLIN (AP) — Hoffenheim has signed Norway defensive midfielder Havard Nordtveit from English Premier League side West Ham.
The Bundesliga club says Nordtveit, who celebrates his 27th birthday on Wednesday, has signed a deal through June 2022.
After midfielder Florian Grillitsch and defender Justin Hoogma, Nordtveit is Hoffenheim's third signing of the offseason.
Hoffenheim has a chance of qualifying for the Champions League proper after its fourth-place finish in the Bundesliga secured a playoff.
Nordtveit previously played for Borussia Moenchengladbach and Nuremberg in the Bundesliga (152 league games for the former), before joining West Ham last year.
He has played 32 times for Norway, most recently as captain.
