Hannover want 20m for former Man Utd striker

Hannover have warned Stoke City that they will not sell Mama Biram Diouf for less than 20 million euros.

Reports have suggested that Stoke City officials have been in Germany for talks over a deal for Diouf.

The former Manchester United striker has impressed in the Bundesliga since leaving England.

The 25-year-old has entered the final year of his contract at Hannover.

Hannover president Martin Kind told Bild: "We do not need the money. His goals may be more important for us.

"If Stoke offered 20 million euros, then we'd think about it, but I don't think that is realistic."

Hannover's director of sport Dirk Dufner added: "It looks like he'll be staying with us.

"He is a good boy and an absolute professional, who has exerted no pressure on the club."
