Diouf has seen his 1st team chances limited this season, making just 3 appearances in the Carling Cup, so a loan seems his best option for playing time.
The striker was spotted in the stands as Hannover beat FC Nurnberg 1-0 earlier tonight and with the clubs agreeing terms, the move will go ahead subject to the 24 year old agreeing terms and passing a medical.
Hannover’s sporting director Jorg Schmadtke told Sky Germany:
“We have an agreement with Manchester United.
“Now, the player must give us his okay.”
