Horst Heldt is still trying to get a defender in for Hannover 96 and it’s now so late that the whole plan could fail.

As has been reported in Germany, Norwich City’s Timm Klose was the man at the top of the wanted list.

However, the asking price put forward by the Championship club, thought to be in the region of €3m, has been considered way too high by the German side.

Now it’s the final day, the German media aren’t confident, but they don’t rule the move out.

Aller Zeitung say Heldt could play some last minute ‘poker’ to try and sign the Norwich player.

Papy Djilobodji remains an option for Hannover, with the Sunderland player seen as the second choice to Klose. But even that could fail, state Aller Zeitung, simply because things are being left so late.

Should Hannover fail to get their defender then Holdt may face some criticism over the situation.
