Leicester have allowed club-record signing Andrej Kramaric to join Hoffenheim on loan for the rest of the season.

Much was expected of the 24-year-old when the club beat Chelsea to the striker's signature last January, with the Foxes paying Rijeka ?9.5million for his signature.

However, Kramaric has struggled to find his feet at the King Power Stadium and now will spend the rest of the season with the side bottom of the Bundesliga table.

The Croatia international told Hoffenheim's official website: "I'm very excited about this chapter with TSG and the Bundesliga and want to play my part in keeping the team up."

Kramaric has made just five appearances this season for the high-flying Foxes, with his only goal coming in a 4-1 Capital One Cup win at Bury.

Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri understands the striker's desperation to get first-team football, especially with Croatia playing at Euro 2016 this summer.

"Andrej has the European Championships to think about this summer, so it's important for him that he has the opportunity to play," he said.

"He is a fantastic player and a great professional but, in this moment, we have other strikers that are playing well.

"I spoke with him to understand what he wants to do and a loan is a solution that works for everybody. We will watch him closely at Hoffenheim."
