96-sporting director Dirk Dufner: “Edgar Prib is a young player with a lot of Bundesliga experience and is extremely versatile. We’ve been working hard to get him and are delighted that he has decided to join 96.” Hannover manager Mirko Slomka: “In Edgar Prib we are getting a very flexible all-rounder in midfield, who has already shown his quality at Fürth. We’re thrilled to have acquired another important piece in the rebuilding of our team.”
