Hoffenh. 25.5.16
Kramaric joins Hoffenheim on permanent deal

Andrej Kramaric has left Premier League champions Leicester City to sign a permanent deal with Hoffenheim. The Croatia striker played the second half of last season on loan at the German club, scoring five goals in 15 games to help preserve Hoffenheim's Bundesliga status. Kramaric's time at Leicester was less productive, although his opportunities were limited in a side that were fighting relegation in his first six months and then subsequently for the title with Jamie Vardy in hot form.

Liverpool 24.5.16
Karius joins Liverpool

Liverpool have confirmed the €6.2m signing of Germany Under-21 goalkeeper Loris Karius from Jurgen Klopp's former club Mainz. Karius, 22, completed a medical on Tuesday and will officially begin a five-year contract on 1 July. He said that speaking to Liverpool boss and fellow German Klopp "convinced" him the move was the right decision. Karius kept nine clean sheets in 34 league games last season as Mainz finished sixth in the Bundesliga.

Lille 24.5.16
Eder completes permanent move to Lille

Lille have completed the permanent signing of Swansea striker Eder on a four-year contract following the Portugal international's successful loan spell with the Ligue 1 club. The 28-year-old, who moved to France in the January transfer window just six months after arriving from Braga, scored six goals in 13 matches while on loan. Eder failed to score in 13 appearances for Swansea, only two of which were Premier League starts.

Arsenal 24.5.16
Arsenal to complete Xhaka signing in next two days

Arsenal are set to announce the transfer of midfielder Granit Xhaka from Borussia Monchengladbach in the next two days. The Mirror reports that the Gunners will put an end to the speculation in the next 48 hours when they confirm a deal for the 23-year-old for a fee expected to be in the range of €40m. All formalities have been completed, including his medical and club photos, but the player had to rush back to join his national team, which delayed the announcement.

Bayern 23.5.16
Hummels completes Bayern move

Bayern Munich have completed the signing of Borussia Dortmund captain Mats Hummels on a five-year contract. The 27-year-old Germany center back joined Bayern at the age of six in 1995, only to leave for Dortmund in January 2008. His final game for Dortmund came against Bayern in the DFB-Pokal final on Saturday, where he was substituted after 78 minutes due to injury before the Bavarians won on penalties. Hummels joins Mario Gotze and Robert Lewandowski in the ranks of key Dortmund players to transfer to Bayern in recent years.

Watford 22.5.16
Sinclair agrees four-year deal with Watford

Watford have completed the signing of Liverpool forward Jerome Sinclair. The England youth international has signed a four-year deal. He will officially join his new club on July 1 as a free transfer after running down his Anfield contract. Because Sinclair is under 24, Watford will owe Liverpool a compensation fee. It's unclear whether the two parties have reached an agreement or if the case will be taken to a tribunal to decipher an acceptable figure.

He will join Walter Mazzarri, who has appointed as Watford's new head coach on a three-year contract. The 54-year-old replaces Quique Sanchez Flores at Vicarage Road to become the Hornets' eighth manager in the last four years.

Bayer L. 20.5.16
Leverkusen sign Kevin Volland

Bayer Leverkusen have secured the services of German forward Kevin Volland from Bundesliga rivals Hoffenheim. The 23-year-old has signed a five-year contract and expressed his delight in making the move. Volland has 33 goals and 38 assists in 132 Bundesliga matches for Hoffenheim. He has also won six caps for Germany, but has not been selected in the squad for the upcoming European Championship in France.

Bayer L. 19.5.16
Leverkusen sign Baumgartlinger

Bayer Leverkusen have announced the signing of Austria international Julian Baumgartlinger from Mainz on a four-year deal. The 28-year-old midfielder will join the club this summer after making 124 Bundesliga appearances for Mainz. He had been under contract at Mainz until 2019, but Leverkusen activated the holding midfielder's €4m buyout clause.

Villarreal 19.5.16
Villarreal signs Qatar striker Afif

Villarreal have signed the Spanish league's first Qatari player, 19-year-old striker Akram Afif. Afif was signed from Qatari club Al Sadd but had been playing on loan for Eupen in Belgium's second division. He previously played on loan at the youth squads of Villarreal. Villarreal vice president Jose Manuel Llaneza says Afif's signing happened "solely for sporting reasons," although he admitted it could help promote the Spanish club in Qatar.

Mainz 19.5.16
Mainz sign Cordoba on permanent basis

Mainz 05 have completed the permanent signing of Jhon Cordoba, who played a key part in an impressive sixth-place Bundesliga finish last season and has now penned a four-year contract with the 05ers lasting until 2020. The Colombian striker struck five times and set up a further two goals during a one-year loan spell from Spanish side Granada.
