Former Manchester United striker Mame Biram Diouf appears to have ruled out a return to the Premier League by saying he wants to stay in Germany with Hannover 96, according to talkSPORT. 

The Senegal international striker was signed by Sir Alex Ferguson in 2009 from Norwegian side Molde but didn't make an appearance until 2010 after he was loaned back to Norway.

On his home debut, Diouf celebrated his first goal in a win over Burnley.

However, that proved to be his only goal in United colours, the next season he was loaned out to Blackburn Rovers where he also failed to impress with just three Premier League goals.

After a couple more League Cup appearances the powerful striker was shown the exit door and later signed for Hannover.

The 25-year-old has encountered more success in the Bundesliga after hitting 20 goals in 42 games.

New Stoke City manager Mark Hughes was keen to bring the 14 cap international to the Britannia over the summer.

However, Diuof has no intentions of a move back to England: "I'm under contract with the Hanover and I like to renew.

"Hannover is a nice place to live and signing with them was the best thing I have done in my career."
