Denmark international Dolberg loaned to Hoffenheim after Sevilla deal cut short

    Good striker Kasper Dolberg has joined Bundesliga side Hoffenheim on loan for the remainder of the season after his spell at Sevilla was cut short.

    Dolberg was loaned to Sevilla early in the season but failed to score in four league matches for the club, falling out of favor after Jorge Sampaoli replaced Julen Lopetegui as head coach.

    Reports last week suggested that the Danish international wanted to end his stay at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan stadium to join Hoffenheim, who are 11th in the Bundesliga after 15 games.

    Hoffenheim confirmed the deal on Monday, when Andre Breitenreiter’s men were in need of reinforcements in attack after losing four of their last five league games.

    Dolberg appeared in all three of Denmark’s games at the recent World Cup in Qatar, although he only started once, when Kasper Hulmand’s team unexpectedly finished bottom of Group D.

    As the Bundesliga enjoys a mid-season break, Hoffenheim will take on a surprise top-four rival Union Berlin on 21 January.
