DaMarcus Beasley joins Bundesliga's Hannover 96

Three-time U.S. World Cup veteran DaMarcus Beasley has signed a two-year contract with the German first division club Hannover 96, where he joins U.S. teammate Steve Cherundolo, the Hannover 96 captain.

“DaMarcus’ signing adds a further option to our squad. That is necessary for a long Bundesliga season – one in which we have made a great start, but one that will still bring many twists and turns in the coming months,” said 96 Sporting Director Joerg Schmadtke. Beasley, 28, passed a medical examination and signed a two-year contract on Monday morning, one day before the close of the transfer window.

Hannover coach Mirko Slomka said, “It is a positive sign for Hannover to be able to attract a further American national player. DaMarcus brings with him great international experience, and can help give us that extra push in the Bundesliga.”

"I already know about 96 because I played a friendly here two years ago," said Beasley, who arrives from Glasgow Rangers. "It will be great to play for the same domestic team as Steven Cherundolo. The Bundesliga will be a fantastic challenge for me."
