Hannover 96 have been boosted with the return of Ghanaian midfielder Kingsley Schindler.
Kenan Kocak worked his side through the preseason without the player who was nursing an injury.
The 27-year-old missed the team’s DFB Pokal against Wurzburger Kickers.
He is now ready to play in their League opener against Karlsruher this weekend after joining group training.
Schindler trained with the team on Tuesday and Wednesday indicating he is fit enough to feature in the game.
Meanwhile Ghana International Patrick Twumasi will also be in contention to make his first League appearance for the German Club after joining the side from Spanish outfit Deportivo Alaves.
He came on to play little part in Hannover’s League Cup victory over Wurzburger Kickers but could earn a start this time around.
