Sane signs on for Hannover

30 May 2013 20:51

Hannover 96 have confirmed the signing of Salif Sane from relegated Ligue 1 side Nancy.

The 22-year-old is a highly-versatile player, as although he is usually deployed in defence he has also featured regularly in a defensive-midfield role this season.

Sane made a combined total of 70 appearances for Nancy and previous club Bordeaux in Ligue 1, and has signed a contract until June 2017 at the AWD-Arena.

"It's great that it (the deal) worked out, the Bundesliga is one of the strongest leagues in the world," Sane told the club's official website.

"It is my goal to assert myself in the team here at Hannover, the club has acquired a great reputation internationally."

Sane becomes the Hannover's first signing of the off-season, and coach Mirko Slomka is delighted to add a defensive reinforcement to his squad.

"We had been striving to strengthen our defence for next season and Salif Sane has impressed in one of Europe's strongest leagues," Slomka added.

"He has everything that is required to establish himself as an important member of our team in the Bundesliga."

Sane becomes the first signing since Dirk Dufner was appointed as director of sport, and he was thrilled to tie-up the deal.

"Salif is a young, ambitions player with plenty of potential," Dufner commented.

"We are very pleased that we have been able to sign a very strong tackler for our defence, and to have tied him down to us on a long-term deal."
