TSG Hoffenheim announced on Tuesday that they have mutually agreed to part ways with Ghanaian defender Kasim Nuhu Adams, as his contract with the Bundesliga club has expired and will not be renewed.

Adams, 28, joined Hoffenheim in 2018 from BSC Young Boys in Bern. However, his time on the field was marred by injuries, which limited his Bundesliga appearances to just 13 in his debut season.

In a bid to secure more playing time, Adams was loaned to Fortuna Düsseldorf for the 2019/20 season.

His most recent loan spell was with FC Basel in the 2022/23 season, during which he played a pivotal role in helping the Swiss team reach the semi-finals of the Conference League.

Acknowledging the less-than-ideal outcome of Adams' tenure, Alexander Rosen, the club's managing director, stated, "In the case of Kasim, we must openly admit that the commitment did not work out for either side from a sporting perspective."

"His time with us had few sporting highlights, despite his consistently impeccable and professional conduct."

During his time with Hoffenheim, Adams made 29 Bundesliga appearances, three DFB Cup appearances, two Champions League appearances, and four Europa League appearances.
