Hannover realised the promise to announce new players before the deadline. One of them unfortunately lowers Conor's chances on a starting spot - ironically it's a player of his "original" club: Fredi Bobic. The players: Fredi Bobic - 30 year old striker from Borussia Dortmund. Scored 86 goals in 204 Bundesliga games (19 caps for Germany), mainly for Stuttgart, but also for Dortmund. Didn't play a role in Dortmund anymore and was loaned to Bolton last season. He'll definitely take the spot of the starting center. Kostas Konstantinidis - 30 year old central/defensive mid from Hertha BSC Berlin. A little bit surprising as this position basically was the only one where Hannover was competitive so far. He played 47 games for Hertha (2 goals) and has 34 caps for Greece. After a long injury last season he was teammate of Bobic in Bolton also due to a loan deal. The third promised player was not announced so far.
