FC Köln have completed the signing of Ron-Robert Zieler on a one-year loan deal from Hannover 96.
"With Ron, we have found a goalkeeper, who fits exactly in our profile. He brings the quality and the experience that we absolutely need at this position. And he is 100% ready to take on the role, which we defined together: number two, with the aim of wanting to play," said FC Köln managing director Horst Heldt in a statement.
Zieler, who played for FC Köln as a youth player, commented:
"It is nice to be back at FC. As the offer came, I didn't have to think long about it. I had good discussions with Horst Heldt and [goalkeeping coach] Andreas Menger, and I'm really looking forward to the chance to play in my home city once again."
The 31-year-old made 31 appearances for Hannover 96 in the 2. Bundesliga last season. He has featured six times for the German national team.
