Ghana defender Kasim Nuhu has joined TSG Hoffenheim after signing a five-year deal in a move from Swiss champions Young Boys understood to be worth €8 million.
The 22-year-old arrived in Germany on Tuesday to complete formalities before sealing a deal with the Bundesliga club until 2023, ending his three-year association with Young Boys. He joined the club from Real Mallorca in Spain.

Nuhu is said to have forced Young Boys to allow him to join Hoffenheim after their initial reluctance as they see the centre-back as key to their Champions League plans this season. He was a key figure for the Berne-based outfit as they clinched their first league trophy in 32 years. Nuhu made 32 appearances, scoring four goals in the process.
He becomes the third Ghanaian player to play for Hoffenheim after Isaac Vorsah between 2007 and 2012 and Prince Tagoe’s spell between 2009 and 2011.
The Medeama product has been capped four times by senior national team, Black Stars, after his debut in October last year. He has two international goals.
