Wolfsburg agree Lakic deal

Wolfsburg have confirmed that Kaiserslautern striker Srdjan Lakic will be joining them in the summer.

Lakic has agreed a four-year contract with the Wolves, whom he will join on a free transfer after his contract with Kaiserslautern expires in June.

"I am really glad that the transfer has worked out," the 27-year-old said. "It is a great challenge for me. Wolfsburg is a big club with a lot of ambitions which I hope to be able to play an important role in achieving.

"That is why I chose Wolfsburg and I am looking forward to the new season starting. Until then, I will concentrate fully on Kaiserslautern and hope to end the season successfully."

Lakic has scored 11 goals so far this season for the Red Devils and is the Bundesliga's fourth highest goalscorer. He arrived in Germany in 2008 from Hajduk Split and, with his goals, he helped Kaiserslautern earn promotion to the top flight last season.

"He is a classical centre forward," Wolfsburg's managing director, Dieter Hoeness, said. "He likes to get in there where it hurts, he creates space and he works for the team.

"He is ambitious, hungry and strong minded and he therefore is just what we were looking for."
