Bundesliga side Hoffenheim has extended Andrej Kramaric's contract until the end of the 2021-22 season.

The Croatia forward has added two years to his existing deal as a reward for scoring 28 league goals over the past two seasons.

His commitment comes as a significant boost for Hoffenheim with head coach Julian Nagelsmann to depart for RB Leipzig next term.

Kramaric, who appeared in each of his nation's seven matches at the World Cup, was convinced to re-sign by the "incredible" recent growth of the club.

"Everything fits together here, and I feel very happy," he said.

"I am highly appreciated from all sides and I really want to work on pushing this development further."

Hoffenheim meets Kaiserslautern in the first round of the DFB-Pokal on Saturday before commencing its Bundesliga campaign away to Bayern Munich the following Friday.
