Leonardo Bittencourt: Moved to Hannover

The 19-year-old Germany Under-20 international spent just a single season with Dortmund, scoring once in five appearances following a move from Energie Cottbus.

Bittencourt has now been given a chance to establish himself as a regular by Hannover, who are happy to have the teenager on board.

"I am very pleased with the agreement. Leonardo wants to improve his skills in the Bundesliga and we gain a fast and strong attacking player," coach Mirko Slomka told the club's official website.

Bittencourt, who holds both a German and Brazilian passport, added: "I am a passionate footballer and my greatest wish is to show what I can do.

"I have a very good feeling Hannover is the right place for me."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
