The striker scored 51 goals in 167 games in France.
Alexander Rosen, head of professional football: “Anthony Modeste is a quick and dangerous striker who's also good in the air. He also works hard when the opposition have the ball.”
TSG manager Markus Gisdol: “We've had our eye on Anthony for while and are delighted that we could arrange a deal for him.”
Modeste on his move to the Bundesliga: “The conversations between myself, Markus Gisdol and Alexander Rosen convinced me that Hoffenheim was the right club to join. I'm pleased to be here and will do all I can to help the team to success.”
