Jansen agrees to leave Bayern for Hamburg
BERLIN, Aug 28 (Reuters) - Hamburg SV have agreed to sign Germany defender Marcell Jansen from fellow Bundesliga side Bayern Munich, the club said on its website on Thursday.
The 22-year-old, who started Germany's first two Euro 2008 matches and appeared as a substitute in their final loss to Spain, will undergo a medical at the club on Thursday before signing a five year contract.
'With Marcell Jansen, together with the transfer of Alex Silva, we are continuing our path of securing highly ambitious players with great prospects,' Hamburg chairman Bernd Hoffmann told the club's website.
Hamburg announced the arrival of Brazil defender Silva from Sao Paulo on a five-year deal on Wednesday. The 23-year-old will replace Belgian defender Vincent Kompany who joined English Premier League side Manchester City last week.
