No move to the USA: Teutschert will remain in Hannover 96 | At the moment – Sports

As of: January 23, 2024 at 4:43 p.m

Second division football side Hannover 96 can rely on the services of top scorer Cedric Teutschert at least until the end of the season. The 27-year-old, who has received an offer from US club Saint Louis, will fulfill his expiring contract with Lower Saxony.

Hannover 96 announced this on the club's website on Tuesday. “We had a very good conversation today in which he told me very clearly of his decision to stay at Hannover 96 and his unwillingness to move this winter,” explained Markus Mann, sporting director of the 96 club.

Mann said Teuchert handled the offer from the United States “very transparently.” Then they talked to St. Louis. However, the transfer amount offered was “economically disproportionate to the potential sporting loss”. Hannover's sporting director told the newspaper “Neue Presse” on Monday He said. According to the newspaper, the Major League Soccer (MLS) club offered 400,000 euros to include Teochert.

“We also spoke with Sir and made it clear to him again that we consider him an important part of our team and that it would be very difficult for us to let him go,” Mann added.

Teutschert is Lower Saxony's most successful player with eight goals this season. After a long period of injury, the 27-year-old celebrated his return last Saturday at the start of the second half of the season against SV Elversberg (2:2). He came on as a substitute for Andreas Vogelssamer in the 65th minute.

The former junior international moved to the Reds for the first time on loan from Schalke 04 in 2019. After one season, he initially returned to Gelsenkirchen, who immediately sold him to Union Berlin. After two years with the Bundesliga club, Hannover signed him again – this time permanently. It is unclear whether Teutschert will extend his expiring contract at Hannover or leave the club on a free after this season.
