Christian Gentner returns to Stuttgart

Germany international Christian Gentner will leave Bundesliga champions Wolfsburg and return to his former club Stuttgart when his contract expires in the summer.

Gentner, who has spent the last three seasons with Wolfsburg and won the title with them last season, revealed his decision to the club today.

"We would have liked to keep Christian Gentner, but his decision has been made for a while,'' reported Wolfsburg coach Armin Veh. "He has developed really well during his time with Wolfsburg.''

The 24-year-old midfielder has played 82 matches for Wolfsburg and has promised to remain committed until the end of his contract.

He said: "I have had a great time in Wolfsburg up to now and will give everything in the coming months to ensure we reach our goals for the season. It was not an easy decision, but it was ultimately a personal wish of mine to move back to Stuttgart.''

Gentner first made the breakthrough in the Stuttgart team as a 19-year-old, having risen through the youth ranks and won the league title for the youth team.

He went on to make 39 appearances for the Swabians before joining Wolfsburg, initially on loan but then permanently in 2008 on a two-year contract.

During his spell with the Wolves, he has broken into the Germany national team and Stuttgart coach Christian Gross is delighted to have enticed him back home.

"Christian Gentner is a valuable new signing for the summer,'' said the Swiss boss on Stuttgart's website. "He is an international player and knows Stuttgart very well.''

Stuttgart director of sport Horst Heldt added: "Christian is looking forward to coming back to Stuttgart and we are looking forward to having him back.''
