January 27, 2011

Netherlands international defender Edson Braafheid has joined Hoffenheim from Bayern Munich.

The 27-year-old Dutchman has penned a three-year contract after the Bundesliga clubs agreed an undisclosed fee for the transfer.

"This is important for my development, especially in regards to the national team,'' Braafheid said.

The defender went to Munich in 2009 from FC Twente but barely featured for the Bavarian giants.
