Hannover have confirmed that Cardiff City are interested in signing striker Mame Biram Diouf, but have no intention of selling the player.

Diouf – reportedly the subject of a failed bid from Stoke City in the close-season – has been linked with a move to the Welsh side as new manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to bolster his squad.

Hannover are keen to keep hold of the Senegal international, although the Bundesliga side have recently fined the former Manchester United forward after he returned from the mid-season break late in order to spend time with his ill mother.

The 26-year-old’s agent Jim Solbakken also acts as the representative of Solskjaer and new Cardiff recruit Magnus Wolff Eikrem.

And Hannover president Martin Kind revealed that Cardiff are keen to take Diouf back to the Premier League.

“Cardiff wants him, I can confirm that,” Kind told Kicker. “But the coach (Tayfun Korkut) wants to keep him, so he stays.”

Diouf joined Hannover from United in 2012 and has since scored 32 goals in 64 appearances for the club. Hannover will return to Bundesliga action on January 25 when Tayfun Korkut’s men travel to Wolfsburg.
