West Ham have announced the sale of midfielder Havard Nordtveit to German side Hoffenheim for a fee understood to be £8m.
The 26-year-old Norway international will be returning to Germany after just a season with the Hammers, who he joined from Borussia Monchengladbach on a free transfer last summer.
West Ham manager Slaven Bilic said: "I would like to thank Havard for his commitment and hard work last season.
"He is an excellent professional and we wish him all the very best at Hoffenheim."
Nordtveit made his debut for the London club in the Europa League last July and made 21 appearances in total.
He moves on to a Hoffenheim side who enjoyed a fine 2016/17 campaign, finishing fourth in the Bundesliga table.
