Sporting director and coach RALF RANGNICK:
- "Hannes has caught our attention due to his prominent development in recent years. This is reflected not only in him winning the UEFA Youth League with the Red Bull Salzburg youth team, but also making numerous appearances both in Austrian and on the European stage - despite his very young age.
These strengths make him a versatile attacking midfielder, and we're pleased that he's decided to take the next step in his career from the start of July."
