Volland completes Leverkusen switch

Bayer 04 Leverkusen have secured the services of German forward Kevin Volland from Bundesliga rivals TSG 1899 Hoffenheim.

The 23-year-old, who scored eight of his 33 Bundesliga goals in the season just ended, has penned a five-year contract with Die Werkself and expressed his delight in making the move. "I was extremely happy in Kraichgau and, despite having opportunities, I extended my contract there once again last year," said Volland on Leverkusen's website.

"But I would now like to take this opportunity to move to a top club like Bayer 04 Leverkusen and to play in the Champions League there. Bayer are the ideal club for me to further my development and show myself on a European stage. I'm really looking forward to pursuing great objectives with Leverkusen."
