Arsenal defender Djourou open to permanent Hannover move

The Swiss defender moved to the Bundesliga side on a six-month loan this month and, having made just one appearance, has said he would be happy to stay with die Rothosen
Hannover defender Johan Djourou has said he would be happy to make his loan move from Arsenal permanent at the end of the season.

The Swiss international moved to the Bundesliga in a bid to see more first-team football, and he would be open to a transfer despite the Gunners not including an option to buy in his loan deal.

"Arsenal did not want to include a buy option," he said.

"But those things don't worry me right now. I have to perform first, to make sure Hannover want to buy me.

"As a team we have the quality to reach the Champions League.

"Everything has to work out great and we all have to stay fit. It is a high goal, but you need to have them in sport."

Djourou has made one appearance for Hannover since joining earlier this month on a six-month loan deal.
