HAMBURG, Germany (AP) — Hamburger SV has signed forward Pierre-Michel Lasogga on a five-year contract from Bundesliga rival Hertha Berlin after he spent a season on loan at the club.

Hamburg announced on Friday it made Lasogga's move permanent but gave no details of the transfer deal.

The 22-year-old player's goal in the second leg of a relegation playoff in May salvaged the top-flight status of the club, the only one never to have been relegated in the Bundesliga's 51-year history.
