Bayern Munich have announced the signing of Hoffenheim and Germany striker Sandro Wagner.

Wagner will join the Bundesliga champions in the January transfer window after signing a two-and-a-half year contract keeping him at the Allianz Arena until 2020.

The 30-year-old has scored five times for Joachim Low's Germany side and a move to Munich should help him feature in next summer's World Cup in Russia.

The striker, who has been given the number two shirt, admits he is delighted to be returning to his home city and said it was an easy decision to say yes.

"I'm delighted," Wagner told Bayern's official website.

"A long journey for me is now at an end and I can return to my home, my club. I'm very happy that it's come off.

"Bayern are the best club in Germany and one of the best in the world.

"When I got the offer, I didn't have to think about it for long."

Wagner, who came through the youth set-up at Bayern, is joining a side 11 points clear at the top of the Bundesliga.
