Official: DaMarcus Beasley Joins Hannover

The American winger will join compatriot Steve Cherundolo after signing a two-year contract with Hannover.
United States international DaMarcus Beasley has signed for Hannover 96, the German club announced on its official website.

"With DaMarcus, we have another good option in our squad," Hannover sporting director Joerg Schmadtke said. "This is important for a long league season that will bring many challenges."

The player himself was thrilled with his move.

"I am familiar with '96 already, because two years ago, I played in a friendly in Hannover. It's great to play with (fellow United States international) Steven Cherundolo in a team. And the league for me is a special challenge."

Beasley, 28, joins Hannover as a free agent after spending the last three seasons with Rangers. Although he has struggled with injury, the player could fill in the void left by new signing Carlitos, who suffered a severe knee injury in his team's Bundesliga opener.
