Bähre and Teichgräber out on loan

Hannover 96 youngsters Mike-Steven Bähre and Niklas Teichgräber have been sent out on loan until the end of the season. Bähre has gone to third-division side Halleschen FC and Teichgräber will play for VfV Borussia 06 Hildesheim in the Regionalliga.

Bader: "Come back with match practice"
Mike Bähre will leave Hannover 96 for half a year and join Halleschen FC. The 20-year-old midfielder had his medical today at the side currently ninth in the third division. The loan deal ends on 30th June 2016. “Mike came to us saying he wanted to go to the third division to get some match practice. We analysed his current situation with Thomas Schaaf and came to the decision that it made sense for all parties to loan him out,” explained sporting director Martin Bader. He continued, “We are expecting value for Hannover 96 from this deal as Mike will return to us in the summer with match practice from the third division.” Bähre himself sees it like that too, “I know that Hannover did not want to get rid of me, so I am also thankful that they have given me the chance to prove myself in the third division. But I am also looking forward to returning to Hannover in the summer.”

Möckel: "We keep believing in him"
Niklas Teichgräber will also put the Hannover 96 shirt back on again in the summer. The U23 player has been loaned to Regionalliga side VfV Borussia 06 Hildesheim. Christian Möckel, athletic director at Hannover, said, “Niklas has a good chance to make appearances at Hildesheim. A change of scenery will do him good. We keep believing in youngsters, and that is why a permanent transfer was never a question.”
