But the switch of German centre-half Julian Börner to 2.Bundesliga side Hannover 96 is at last in its final stages, so says Owls manager Darren Moore

Reports last week suggested the deal was to be held up only by the coronavirus-enforced quarantine rules set out in Germany. It is believed a fee of around £128,000 was agreed between the two clubs.
