Norway global midfielder Havard Nordtveit has joined Hoffenheim from West Ham for an undisclosed fee, both clubs have announced.

The Norway global heads back to Germany a year after arriving in London from Borussia Monchengladbach on a free transfer ahead of the 2016-17 season.

The Hammers have now offloaded the 26-year-old for an undisclosed fee, sending him back to the Bundesliga with Hoffenheim.

The Bundesliga club says Nordtveit, who celebrates his 27th birthday on Wednesday, has signed a deal through June 2022.

Trump calls Warmbier's death a 'total disgrace'
Warmbier's parents have not cited a specific cause of death, but pointed to "awful, torturous mistreatment" by North Korea. Trump says he spoke with Warmbier's parents and says it's "incredible what they've gone through".

"After my time in Gladbach, I know the Bundesliga as well as anyone", said Nordtveit upon the announcement of the transfer.

Speaking about the move, Hammers manager Slaven Bilic told the club's official website: "I would like to thank Havard for his commitment and hard work last season. He brings with him the ideal attributes needed for a centre-back in a back three or a back four, and can even play to a high level as a defensive midfielder".

Nordtveit, who failed to make an appearance for Arsenal between 2007 and 2011, managed just eight full games in the Premier League last season.

He will get the opportunity to play Champions League football after Hoffenheim achieved their highest-ever league position of fourth last season.
