Sebastian Jung has joined Hannover 96 on a free transfer from VfL Wolfsburg.
The right-back played just 57 minutes in one appearance for the Wolves last season, spending most of the season with the reserves. Jung had played just 18 league matches over the past four years with Wolfsburg.
Recently relegated Hannover 96 have brought in an experienced defender who picked up his one and only cap for the German national team in 2012 whilst playing for Eintracht Frankfurt.
Jung’s contract had expired at Wolfsburg, five years after joining the club for a reported €2.5 million in 2014. He has signed a one-year deal at the HDI Arena.
The 29-year-old is looking to revive his career in the 2. Bundesliga, telling the club’s official website:
“The transfer to 96 is a new beginning for me, I would like to prove myself once again in professional football. We are facing a big and exciting task. Hannover 96 is a club with tremendous potential, but nothing comes of its own and we’ll have to work our way to success. “
Hannover 96 head coach is pleased to have secured Sebastian Jung’s services:
“With Sebastian Jung comes a first-class defender who can help us absolutely. He is fit again and has the will and bite that we can use here. I am pleased that he has decided to join 96.”
Sebastian Jung came through the youth ranks at Eintrach Frankfurt, making his senior debut during the 2009-10 campaign. He has made a total of 155 Bundesliga appearances during his career and 33 in the 2. Bundesliga.
