Munich - Off the Ball, bundesliga.com's weekday feature, casts an eye over some of the offbeat and occasionally controversial tales to have emerged from Germany's top flight sides.

Today, we hear of more praise for Kevin De Bruyne's move to Wolfsburg, see who is navigating Köln's flight to Turkey with the precision of his on-field antics and catch up with Holger Badstuber as he continues his road to recovery.

Kevin De Bruyne's move to VfL Wolfsburg from Chelsea FC has been dominating the headlines, and the news has also reached Belgium coach Marc Wilmots (pictured), and brought a smile to the face of the former FC Schalke 04 player and coach. "It's super for Kevin, for Wolfsburg and for our national team," he told Sport Bild magazine. "Wolfsburg's the right club for him to show his quality. Kevin's going to enjoy his football again with VfL."

Bundesliga 2 side 1. FC Köln took off for their mid-season training camp in Belek, with seven-goal hitman Anthony Ujah in the cockpit. If he is as good at the controls as he is on the pitch, and if he knows the way to Turkey as well as the route to goal, then it should be a fast and smooth flight to their target for the Billy Goats.
