Sören Halfar (born 2 January 1987) is a German former professional footballer who plays as a left-back.

Club career[edit]

Born in Hannover, Halfar joined his hometown club's youth ranks in January 2001, and progressed to the senior squad list for the 2004–05 season.[1] He made his Bundesliga debut on 29 January 2005 in a 1–0 win at Arminia Bielefeld. His time since has twice been blighted by torn cruciate ligament injuries, although he has managed a handful of first team appearances in each season since his debut.

In January 2007, Halfar joined SC Paderborn 07 on loan from his home club, the Bundesliga side Hannover 96.[2]

He left SC Paderborn in summer 2010 when his contract ran out. On 3 June 2010, he signed a two-year contract for Wacker Burghausen, leaving for SV Sandhausen a year later.

International career[edit]

Halfar has four caps for the Germany Under-21 side after progressing from the Under-19s.[3]
