Hamadi Al Ghaddioui has left Stuttgart to sign for Pafos FC in Cyprus.
VfB Stuttgart have confirmed the permanent departure of 31-year-old forward Hamadi Al Ghaddioui.
Al Ghaddioui will join Cypriot first-division side Pafos FC with immediate effect, Stuttgart have announced.
After joining Stuttgart in 2019, the striker went on to score 13 goals in 49 appearances.
"Hamadi was an important member of our squad in recent years, both on and off the pitch," said Stuttgart sporting director Sven Mislintat.
"He played a significant role in our gaining promotion back to the Bundesliga straight away and even when he was given less playing time, he always put the team first. Hamadi has now been given an interesting opportunity to gain new experiences abroad and also play in Europe if Pafos do well enough in the league.
"With this in mind, we were happy to agree to his wish for a transfer. We would like to thank Hamadi for his commitment in the VfB jersey and wish him all the best for the future."
