Germany's national daily Bild is reporting that new Hansa Rostock manager Dieter Eilts still has his eyes on three new players to strengthen the side and Hannover's young American Sal Zizzo is one of them. In previous weeks, reports out of Hannover indicated that the club was not keen on selling the 21 year-old San Diego native.
At the same time, Hansa may be able to take Zizzo on loan since he has primarily seen action with the reserve team this season (11 appearances) while only seeing three first team matches as a substitute in one cup and two league matches.
After making a strong showing at the 2007 U-20 World Championships, Zizzo's European pro career has gone reasonably well but he appears ready to kick it into the next gear. When asked about the potential move, Zizzo told Bild: "I'd gladly go to Rostock."
Eilts appears to have the pedigree to bring Hansa's ship back on course, having previously led Werder Bremen to Bundesliga and German Cup wins.
