On 14th May 2020, German news agency Bild reported that Hannover's American youth international Sebastien Soto is set to join Noriwch on a free transfer when his Hannover contract expires, and would sign a three year contract. But because Soto's application for a work permit was denied, he'll be forced to go out on loan for the first year of the deal, and at present there is interest from German, Dutch and Belgian clubs.
Soto made 5 first-team appearances for Hannover after joining in 2018 after rising through the ranks at MLS side Real Salt Lake. He made a positive first impression at Hannover, scoring 17 goals in 24 appearances with Hannover's U-19 team during the 2018-19 season. He was previously with the San Diego Surf before moving to Real Salt Lake in 2016.
Soto made his debut for the United States under-19 team in May 2018, scoring five goals in four matches at the 2018 Slovakia Cup, where he won the Golden Boot award as top scorer. He made his Under-20 debut in September 2018 and played for the USA in the Concacaf Under-20 tournament and the 2019 FIFA Under-20 World Cup (scoring four goals).
