Marcel moves to Tynecastle

31st January 2020

Daniel Stendel has made his fourth signing of the Janaury transfer window with the addition of countryman Marcel Langer.

The defensive midfielder has penned a deal with the Jambos until the end of the season - subject to international clearance - after leaving Bundesliga side Schalke 04.

The 22-year-old is a product of Hannover 96’s youth system and regularly turned out for the club’s U17s and U19s sides, lifting the German Youth Cup with the latter in 2016.

Promoted to the reserves in 2016/17, he became a mainstay of the team before moving to Schalke in 2018.

He would go on to feature 27 times for Schalke’s reserve side before exiting the Veltins-Arena during the transfer window, allowing him to move to Tynecastle Park.
