Former Liverpool midfielder linked with Hannover move

Mohamed Sissoko could be on his way to the Bundesliga

Former Liverpool midfielder Mohamed Sissoko is set for a move to Bundesliga side Hanover according to TalkSport.

Sissoko had trouble finding a club at the start of last season, and was strongly linked with Championship side Reading before he made the short-term switch to La Liga side Levante.

The Malian was signed for Liverpool by Rafa Benitez from Valencia in the summer of 2005 for £5.6 million, and became a fans' favourite amongst the fans at Anfield. However, a nasty looking injury that was sustained during a Champions League clash with Benfica seemed to slow his development and hinder progress at Anfield as he recovered from an eye injury.

During his time at Anfield he won the FA Cup and was part of the side that got to the 2007 Champions League final, which the side lost 2-1 to AC Milan in Athens.

He was subsequently sold to Serie A giants Juventus and also had a spell at PSG before joining Levante – where fans of Spanish football will recall he had a memorable exchange with Atletico Madrid forward Diego Costa, in a game where Levante ran out 2-0 winners.

A move to Hannover would be Sissoko’s first taste of action in the Bundesliga having played in France, England and Spain in his career, and at the age of 29 he will perhaps be hoping for a longer stay at the German side than he has had at many of his clubs recently.
