Hannover have confirmed they are in talks with Manchester United's Mame Biram Diouf.

The 24-year old Senegalese striker is not really a part of Sir Alex Ferguson's plans and could be on his way out this winter whether it be a loan or permanent transfer with the Germans at the head of the queue.

"There have been discussions with his agent. We have shared our thoughts. I am now waiting for a response," Hannover sporting director Jorg Schmadke told Bild.

"He is fast, robust, and direct."
