The Portuguese midfielder only joined Hannover in the summer, but immediately fell out of favour with coach Ewald Lienen.
Sousa only made five appearances before the winter break and threatened to leave in January if his situation did not improve.
The 26-year-old was expected to return to his native Portugal, but he has made a surprise move to De Graafschap.
The former Boavista man will spend the rest of the season on loan at De Graafschap before assessing his options in the summer.
De Graafschap have also completed the loan capture of Feyenoord defender Glenn Loovens.
The defender initially baulked at the move as he wanted to secure a transfer to England.
However, he performed an about turn on Monday when reported English suitors failed to firm up their interest.
Hilmi Michi, meanwhile, has joined Stormvogels Telstar on loan for the rest of the season.
