Hoffenheim have completed the signing of 18-year-old U.S. international Justin Che from FC Dallas.

The young centre-back has signed a two-year loan deal, which includes an option to buy.

"Justin is a very talented player who can be used flexibly in defense, and who impresses with his speed and skills on the ball," said Hoffenheim director of professional football Alexander Rosen.

"TSG Hoffenheim are known in the U.S. for their successful work with young players, which is impressively demonstrated not least by the development of Chris Richards in recent months," said Che.

Che was sent out on loan to Bayern in February 2021 and made eight appearances for their reserves before he returned to Dallas at the end of May.

He has featured 15 times in the MLS for FC Dallas.
