Hoffenheim have announced the signing of Sebastian Rudy on a one-year loan deal from Schalke 04.

The 29-year-old has struggled to live up to the expectations at Veltins-Arena after completing a €16 million move from Bayern München last summer and now returns to the club he represented from 2010 to 2017.


"The past season wasn't perfect for me, so I'm all the more motivated to get back to my old stregth here at my old place of work. The conditions at TSG are almost perfect - I know the people at TSG and the requirements at the club, and I know my way of playing football is appreciated here," said Rudy.

Rudy, whose contract with Schalke runs until 2022, made 28 appearances for 'The Royal Blues' last season.
