While there remains plenty of time to see whether he can permanently ensconce himself in Leitl's XI, the local "Neue Presse" newspaper reports that "die Roten" definitely wish to utilize the purchase clause in Arrey-Mbi's current loan contract. A story appearing in the paper quotes club H96 boss Martin Kind as saying "We want Bright". Furthermore, the reported purchase amount of €500,000 is said to be considered more than reasonable by club management.
Arrey-Mbi's current estimated market value stands at €800,000, down from a peak of roughly €1.3 million when the player's potential was more auspiciously appraised. There has been some talk that an automatic purchase clause is built into the teenager's current loan deal. He may belong to Hannover no matter what in the event of promotion. Under Leitl, the Lower Saxons are presently in fifth place in the 2. Bundesliga table, two points off the promotion playoff place and four away from certain promotion.
