PRAGUE (AP) -- Czech Republic defender Frantisek Rajtoral is leaving domestic champion Viktoria Plzen to join Hannover in Germany's Bundesliga.

Plzen says Rajtoral will move to Hannover on loan until the end of the season with an option for the German club to buy the 27-year-old player, who can be also used in midfield.

Plzen says a contract between the clubs will be completed on Thursday after the player passes a medical test.

Rajtoral has played 13 international matches for the Czech Republic.
