(Football) Hamburg signs Lasogga from Hertha Berlin
(07-04 16:55)

Hamburger SV signed forward Pierre-Michel Lasogga on a five-year contract from Bundesliga rival Hertha Berlin after he spent a season on loan at the club. It also sold midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu to Bayer Leverkusen on Friday.
The 22-year-old Lasogga's goal in the second leg of a relegation playoff in May salvaged the top-flight status of the club, the only one never to have been relegated in the Bundesliga's 51-year history. Hamburg didn't give details of the permanent transfer deal.
Also, Leverkusen announced it signed Calhanoglu, a 20-year-old who has played for Turkey, on a five-year deal subject to a medical.
Leverkusen finished fourth last season, giving it a chance to qualify for this season's Champions League. It said Calhanoglu wanted a chance to prove himself in European competition. --AP
