Hannover prepare new contract for Liverpool goalkeeper target

Liverpool target Ron-Robert Zieler is set to be handed a new long-term contract with Hannover 96, according to the Bundesliga club's general manager Dirk Dufner, reports Sky Sports.

The 24-year-old goalkeeper was heavily linked with a move to the Premier League during the summer transfer window, when a clause in his contract allows him to leave for a fee in the region of €7million.

Reds boss Brendan Rodgers was credited with an interest in bringing the former Manchester United youngster to Anfield, but that was prior to the Merseyside club's move for Simon Mignolet from Sunderland.

Zieler still has two years to run on his existing deal at the HDI-Arena, but Dufner has expressed his concern at the release clause that comes into play during each transfer window.

"We are keen on signing a new contract with Ron-Robert Zieler," he told Sport-BILD weekly.

"No club in this business is happy to have players under contract that are based on release clauses. Of course, we are also not happy about such circumstances."

With a new deal in the pipeline for a player that first joined Hannover in 2010, Liverpool will be forced to turn their attention to alternative targets, if they remain interested in adding another goalkeeper to their first-team ranks in January.
