34233 - Diouf leaves Man Utd for Hannover

Diouf, 24, has put pen-to-paper on a two-and-a-half-year deal with the Bundesliga outfit, who he will join on Monday.

"I am pleased that we now have another alternative for our attack with Mame Diouf," Hannover coach Mirko Slomka said to

"We are now going to have to integrate him quickly so that he can help us with our upcoming challenges in the Bundesliga and the Europa League."

Senegal international Diouf arrived at United from Molde in 2009, but failed to establish himself at Old Trafford and spent last season on loan with Blackburn, where he scored three goals.

He did not feature in the Premier League for United this season.
