The 25-year-old right-back, who came through the Gladbach youth ranks, will join the promoted side on a three-year deal.

Korb has made a total of 101 appearances for Gladbach, 76 of them in the Bundesliga. He has also represented the Foals in the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League, as well as Germany at U21 level.

“In spite of his young age, Julian already has a lot of experience, both in the Bundesliga and in Europe,” enthused Hannover coach Horst Heldt. “He has learned a lot with Gladbach and now he wants to take the next step with us.”

The young right-back feels that Hannover is the perfect side for him as he thinks he can develop himself at the newly promoted Bundesliga side.

“My goals and Hannover’s goals are very much aligned,” Korb said. “I want to keep progressing and help the club take the next step in the Bundesliga. I’m ready to take on my responsibilities.”

Korb is currently on holiday but will pen a three-year contract upon his return, pending a medical examination. Hannover has been busy in the transfer window as they announced Korb as their 6th signing this summer and also becomes the 2nd player from Gladbach after 18-year old midfileder Tom Baller joined Hannover this summer.
