With the signing of Hoffenheim’s Sven Schipplock, Hamburg snapped up their second striker of the summer transfer window, both Bundesliga teams confirmed.
The 26-year-old striker has inked a three-year deal that keeps him with the “Rothosen” until June 2018, Xinhua reported on Friday.
Schipplock played for Hoffenheim for four years, from 2011 until 2015. He provided 12 assists and 16 goals in 84 Bundesliga appearances.
“I think it is a dream for a lot of players to play for such a great club like Hamburg. The same goes for me. It is an honour to get such an offer therefore I didn’t have to think twice,” Schipplock said.
