Friendlies & Rumours
It is rumoured that Hannover manager Beno Zeeb, has been given an affable transfer budget for January. The only difficult part to this is, where does Zeeb invest the money? His striking is pair have done an excellent job so far. His midfield is stacked. The defence is on point and his goalkeeper is one of the best in the league. The only places viable for a switch would be that of Huszti and Pinto's positions as they both creep to a depreciating age. Pinto being 32 and Huszti 29. All we know is that Zeeb has some decisions to make and that the fans will be anxious to see a quality signing to boost their run for Champions League Football.
Zeeb has already announced the expected transfer list. Christian Pande, who has been riddled with injuries makes the list being replaced by Rausch. Andreasen and Chahed remain on the list from August. Schlaudraff has failed to impress and with his advancing age he has also made the list.
So far for rumours the recently transfer listed Gaitan from Benfica has apparently caught Zeeb's eye. Especially for a cut price, this could be a strong replacement for Hannover's Hungarian Huszti. Along with Gaitan, Mainz's Shawn Parker has also apparently been linked with Die Roten.
