VfL Wolfsburg have confirmed that Daniel Didavi will join the club from VfB Stuttgart at the end of the season.
'Decision wasn't an easy one'
The attacking midfielder, 26, has put pen to paper on a contract until 2021 with the Lower Saxony club.
"We're delighted that Daniel Didavi has decided to join VfL Wolfsburg," said sporting director Klaus Allofs. "We've been watching his development closely over a long period of time. He’s become a standout performer for Stuttgart in recent years and has developed a personality with great leadership qualities."
Explaining his decision to leave the club he joined as a youngster, Didavi said: "It is a very, very difficult decision for me. I played for Stuttgart from a very early stage of my career. VfB are a huge part of my life which is why the decision wasn't an easy one. However, I'm convinced that joining Wolfsburg is the right step for me, because they – irrespective of their current situation – are pursuing the greatest sporting ambitions and I want to play my part in achieving those goals."
The 26-year-old, who has made 64 appearances in all competitions for the Swabian giants, was quick to underline where his priorities lie at present, though. "The season is not finished yet and I want to show the supporters the Dida they’ve come to know in the upcoming matches," said the playmaker. "Our goal right now to achieve Bundesliga safety and I am absolutely convinced we can achieve this."
