Adamyan leaves for 1. FC Cologne

Sargis Adamyan is leaving TSG Hoffenheim. The Armenia international is set to join fellow Bundesliga club 1. FC Cologne with immediate effect. The 29-year-old, who was loaned out to Belgian top-flight outfit Club Bruges in the second half of last season, still had a year left on his contract in the Kraichgau.

"The loan to Bruges culminated in him winning the title and went very well for everyone involved, so there were several interested parties. Sargis has been given a four-year contract by 1. FC Cologne and a seemingly different role to what he has with us, so having taken the economic considerations and the personal motives of the player into account, we've agreed to the transfer," said TSG's director of football Alexander Rosen. "Sargis became a Bundesliga player with us and managed time and time again to make an impact, especially as a substitute. He also helped write a little piece of TSG history by scoring that brace in Munich, and Sargis has always been a highly appreciated member of our team by everyone off the pitch as well. We will have fond memories of him and wish him all the very best for his sporting and personal future."

Back in the summer of 2017, Sargis Adamyan played for TSV Steinbach against the TSG Hoffenheim U23s in the Regionalliga. Following his transfer to Jahn Regensburg, the Armenian made his breakthrough in the 2018/19 campaign, scoring 15 goals and assisting a further 11 in the 2. Bundesliga. Shortly afterwards, the attacking player was signed by TSG. During his debut Bundesliga campaign, the striker impressed with six goals in all competitions and was the highest-scoring substitute of the season up until his injury. On 5 October 2019, Adamyan was the match-winner when he scored both Hoffenheim goals in a 2-1 victory over Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena. All in all, he made 46 Bundesliga appearances for the Sinsheim outfit (eight goals), and played four Europa League matches (two goals) and three DFB-Pokal games (one goal).
