With a statement on their official website, two-time German champions Hannover 96 have announced the signing of Hamburg-born Nigerian left-back Brooklyn Ezeh.
By signing a three-year contract with The Reds with an additional year as an option, Ezeh has ended his association with newly-promoted German 2.Bundesliga club Wehen Wiesbaden.
Hannover have pulled off a transfer coup by luring Ezeh to Lower Saxony as other clubs were in the running for his signature.
Named after one of New York’s five boroughs, Eze has moved closer to his hometown Hamburg, as his parents still live in Hanseatic city today.
His previous clubs include Hamburger SV, FC Schalke 04 and Viktoria Berlin.
Ezeh has bagged a transfer to Hannover on the back of an outstanding season at Wehen Wiesbaden in which he logged 36 appearances in all competitions and directly participated in 11 goals from his fullback position.
Commenting on his transfer to Hannover, Ezeh told the club’s official webpage: “Hannover 96 tried extremely hard for me. Those responsible have shown me that they are pursuing a clear plan with me.
“I’m looking forward to proving myself in a new league and being able to take the next step in my career here.
“I’ve heard a lot of good things about the team and I can’t wait to finally get to know the guys”.
Ezeh received three call-ups for Bundesliga matches during his time at Hannover but was not given game time.
