HANNOVER, Germany (AP) — Hannover has signed French forward Jimmy Briand one day before its opening match in the new Bundesliga season.
Briand was without a club after his contract with Lyon expired at the end of the season. Briand has made five appearances for France.
Hannover says the 29-year-old Briand signed a one-year contract.
Hannover hosts Schalke in their league opener on Saturday.
