German Bundesliga II side Hannover 96 have performed a big u turn after snubbing a move for German born Angolan Anderson Lucoqui.

Mainz and Hannover had  already reached an agreement on Lucoqui with the terms being an initial on loan with an option to buy. But the player himself didn't seem to be sure anymore whether a move to Hannover is the best option for him.

The lower tier German side have now turned their attention to German born Ghanaian left back Derrick Arthur Köhn.

Arthur Köhn played for relegated German Eredivisie side Willem II Tilburg last season and has just a year left on his contract with the Dutch side.

Hannover 96 have quickly ditched plans for Lucoqui as they have now turned their sights on Arthur Köhn.

Hanover is said to be paying a transfer fee of 500,000 euros for the 23-year-old who was born in Hamburg, and  played for Bayern II for three years.

Köhn should travel to the Hannover 96 training camp in Rotenburg.

The left back made 31 appearances for Willem II Tilburg scoring once and providing one assist.
