The Latvian international left Hamburg's training camp in Abu Dhabi to make the medical exam with his new side, which is in Belek, Turkey as both clubs agreed on a loan deal, Xinhua reported Thursday.
Hannover received a buyer's option for their new striker, who spent most of the time on the side-line this season.
