Hannover have re-signed midfielder Szabolcs Huszti from Zenit St. Petersburg on a three-year contract, three years after the Hungary international left the club for Russia.

Huszti passed a medical at the weekend and the final formalities over a transfer for an undisclosed fee were completed last night.

"It is great to be back," said the 29-year-old, who played for Hannover between 2006 and 2009.

The coach really wanted me to come back and that was obviously an important reason why I agreed.
