Leonardo Bittencourt: On Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp's rader

The 20-year-old midfielder joined the fellow Bundesliga side from Dortmund at the start of the season, on a deal which could see him stay at the HDI-Arena until June 2017.

However, there is a clause in the contract which offers Klopp the opportunity to re-sign the player at any point during his spell at Hannover.

After struggling to settle at Dortmund, Bittencourt has become a first-team regular at Hannover, scoring four goal in 24 appearances for the club, and Klopp admits he is keeping an eye on the attacking playmaker.

"Leonardo Bittencourt is a player we are keeping tabs on," he told Deutsche Presseagentur.

"He has become very good in front of goal and played a lot of decisive passes at the same time.

"He definitely is now the starlet we recognised when we signed him for Borussia Dortmund from Energie Cottbus. He is a great talent."

Bittencourt features in Tayfun Korkut's squad for their trip to Hoffenheim on Wednesday night and looks set to retain his place on the left flank.

suspect the review will conclude that Iago Aspas should never have been loaned out. Two hat-tricks in two Copa Del Rey games. One might say he has really turned a corner.
