Hannover sign striker Jonathas from Rubin Kazan

Bundesliga newcomers Hannover 96 have strengthened their attack by completing the signing of Brazilian striker Jonathas from Rubin Kazan.

The German outfit were promoted to the top flight last season and have brought in the 28-year-old on a three-year contract.

Jonathas has played all over the world, having enjoyed spells in Brazil, Netherlands, Italy, and Spain, before penning a contract at Hannover.

“I’m really pleased that the move to Hannover has worked out,” said Jonathas, according to the official Bundesliga website.

“After several clubs in my career, I want to settle down in Hannover. My aim is to help the club secure safety and help out by scoring goals. I’ve only heard good things about my new team.”

“As far as strikers go, Jonathas ticks all the boxes for us,” added Horst Heldt, Hannover’s sporting director.

“He’s imposing physically, dangerous on both feet and good in the air. He’s scored goals wherever he’s been and that’s what we’re expecting from him in Hannover.
