Hannover hook Sobiech and Hauger

Hannover 96 have taken on promising Poland forward Artur Sobiech and Norway midfielder Henning Hauger as they prepare to compete in the UEFA Europa League play-off round.

UEFA Europa League play-off hopefuls Hannover 96 have taken on promising Poland forward Artur Sobiech and Norway midfielder Henning Hauger, both for undisclosed transfer fees.

KSP Polonia Warszawa striker Sobiech has agreed a deal to play for Hannover until June 2014. "In Artur Sobiech we have an attacker whose physical strength gives us extra options," said coach Mirko Slomka. "He is a player with a bright future." Originally with Ruch Chorzów, the 21-year-old scored nine goals in 23 Ekstraklasa games for Polonia last term. He has also been capped at both Under-21 and senior levels.

The Lower-Saxony side have also signed Hauger from Stabæk Fotball. The 25-year-old, who has represented Norway 21 times, has penned a contract until summer 2015. "I am delighted the transfer has worked out," added Slomka. "We have been looking for a player with international experience in that central position in front of the defence." Hannover finished fourth in the Bundesliga last season.
