Bundesliga leaders Hoffenheim will sign Germany international goalkeeper Timo Hildebrand in January according to reports in the German media.
Both Bild and Kicker claim that Hildebrand has agreed a deal with the South West German outfit just days after leaving Valencia by mutual consent.
Hoffenheim officials have, however, refused to comment on the reports and it would appear an official statement will be made following the club's final Bundesliga match before the winter break at home to Schalke on Sunday.
Hildebrand, who helped Stuttgart win the Bundesliga title in 2007, made his debut for VfB under current Hoffenheim coach Ralf Rangnick in the 1999/2000 season.
