Wolfsburg's Kjaer completes Lille switch

Simon Kjaer is joining Ligue 1 club Lille from Wolfsburg, and the defender is delighted to have completed the move.

Simon Kjaer endured a disppointing spell with Wolfsburg
Kjaer is reported to have agreed terms with Lille.

The Denmark international has agreed personal terms for a transfer, and Wolfsburg sporting director Klaus Allofs confirmed: “Simon asked us for permission to talk to Lille.

He confirmed the time was right to complete the move, telling the club's official website: "I think it's the right moment for me to join Lille now. It is clear that the idea of joining such a club can only be good.

"I have excellent feelings about this club. I'm delighted to come back, more definitively this time."

Kjaer first arrived in Lille for a trial seven years ago before moving to Palermo where he played 62 times before joining the Wolves in 2012.

He spent the 2011/12 season back in Serie A on loan at Roma before making 22 appearances in the Bundesliga last season.

Reports suggest Allofs will ask between €4 million and €5 million for Kjaer, who joined from Palermo for €12 million in 2010.

If he does leave, Wolfsburg would step up their interest in St Etienne’s €10 million-rated Kurt Zouma, described by Allofs as “an interesting player”. St Etienne have stressed that they are determined to keep him.
