Cologne have completed the signing of Hoffenheim striker Anthony Modeste for an undisclosed fee.
The French striker has scored 19 league goals in two seasons with Hoffenheim, and penned a four-year deal until June 2019 with fellow Bundesliga side Cologne.
“Anthony fits as a robust, prolific striker exactly to our requirements,” managing director Jorg Schmadtke told Cologne’s official website.
Modeste added: “Cologne is one of the biggest and most prestigious clubs in Germany.
“Even for players of the visiting team a game at the Rhein Energie Stadium is an absolute highlight.”
Modeste had spells with the likes of Nice, Bordeaux, Blackburn Rovers and Bastia before joining Hoffenheim ahead of the 2013-14 season.
