Ghana striker Prince Tagoe has left Germany's Hoffenheim to sign a three-year deal with Turkey's Bursaspor.

The Bundesliga club announced the deal on Thursday, one day after the transfer market closed.

Hoffenheim general manager Ernst Tanner said Tagoe gained plenty of experience at the club and he thanked the 24-year-old for his commitment.

"My only motivation for the move to Turkey is to play regular football," Tagoe told BBC Sport.

"I spent the last season on loan at Partizan Belgrade and everyone saw my potential and quality.

"But sitting on the bench at Hoffenheim was unacceptable for me and I had to make a decision to advance my career.

"That is why I took the move to Turkey - and I hope I can realise my potential there and take my club to better places."

Tagoe scored a handful of goals in 22 appearances for Hoffenheim, but proved far more clinical while with Serbian side Partizan.

Another Ghanaian on the move is Black Star defender David Addy, who has been loaned out once again by Portuguese champions FC Porto.

The centre back, who spent last season on loan at Portuguese side Academica, will spend the next year with Greek Super League newboys Panetolikos.
