Djourou completes permanent Hamburg switch

Johan Djourou has completed a permanent switch to Hamburg, according to the Daily Star.

Having fallen out of favour under Arsene Wenger, the Switzerland international moved to the Bundesliga side, initially on loan last summer, and has since made twenty-two appearances in all competitions for the club.

Hamburg coach Mirko Slomka is pleased a deal has been completed for the 27 year-old, who spent last season on loan with fellow German top flight side Hannover 96.

Djourou made one hundred and forty-one appearances for the Gunners since turning professional in 2004, while he also turned out thirteen times on loan for Birmingham City during the 2007/08 campaign.

Internationally, he has won forty-three caps for Switzerland, and is set to feature for them at this summer’s World Cup finals in Brazil.

Hamburg current sit second from bottom in the Bundesliga, and will hope to climb out of the relegation when they host Bayer Leverkusen on Friday evening.
