Bundesliga side Hannover are on the verge of completing a year-long loan move for Schalke midfielder Jan Moravek.
Moravek, who has two Czech caps to his name, joined Schalke from Bohemians last year but struggled for regular football during the 2009/10 term.
Hannover have now moved to land the 20-year-old playmaker on a season-long loan as they aim to bolster ahead of the new term.
"We are interested in Jan Moravek and talks regarding him coming over are ongoing by now," Hannover chairman Martin Kind told Deutsche Presseagentur.
"I assume everything should be arranged at the start of next week, though."
Meanwhile, retired defender Valerien Ismael it set to be named as a board member of Hannover.
