Slomka in line for new Hannover deal

Hannover manager Mirko Slomka is set to sign a new contract with his club, according to the club's president, having recently been linked with Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich.

In November, Martin Kind had fuelled speculation that Slomka could leave the club, when he had told the press that all talks had been delayed until the winter break.

Slomka had been linked with the Bayern job but a recent slump in form with three defeats in their last four games including a 5-0 defeat away to Bayern Munich had silenced the rumors, and he is close to committing his future to the AWD-Arena.

"I would even bet on it," Kind told German radio NDR 2 at the weekend. "I am optimistic and am now even convinced that we will have three more years of Mirko Slomka after July 1, 2013."

Slomka, who had also been linked with Wolfsburg, could put his name underneath a 2016 contract in Hannover on Wednesday, Bild is reporting.

Hannover have qualified for the knockout phase in Europa League, but their recent poor form has seen them drop down to 12th in the Bundesliga. They face in-form Bayer Leverkusen at home.
