BERLIN, Jan 22 (Reuters) - Relegation-threatened Hoffenheim have signed Argentine defender David Abraham from Spain's Getafe in a deal to 2016 and have sent Marvin Compper to the reserves as they try to recover from their worst first half of a Bundesliga season.
The tall, 26-year-old Abraham won three Swiss league titles and two Swiss Cups with FC Basel before joining the Spanish team last year.
