The 22-year-old, who is coming to the end of his contract with Saudi club Al Ettifaq, penned a two-year with the Bundesliga club. Tagoe was the target of English side Middlesbrough and Fulham as well as Spanish outfit Valencia and French club Rennes. But the Black Stars striker insists Hoffenheim will offer him the opportunity of getting regular first team action. "I am delighted to join a young club, this club is giving an opportunity to youngsters to express themselves and I am happy to be part of it," Tagoe said. Tagoe will link-up with fellow countryman Isaac Vorsah at the Rhein Neckar Arena. The deal ends his three-year stay in the Middles East after making his first move abroad after the 2006 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
