Bundesliga side Hoffenheim loaned Icelandic striker Gylfi Sigurdsson to English Premier League side Swansea on Monday and announced they had signed young German defender Stefan Thesker.

Sigurdsson, 22, has already had experience of English football as he was at Reading before joining Hoffenheim last year.

Thesker, 20 and a highly-regarded central defender, signed a two-and-ahalf year contract from Dutch side FC Twente, who had previously loaned him out to Dutch Second Division outfit Fortuna Sittard.
