Wolfsburg Confident Chelsea Linked Wing Wunderkind Won’t Go Anywhere Before Season’s End


Friday, 25th October, 2013

Wolfsburg are confident that wing wunderkind Julian Brandt will not leave the club in the January transfer window.

The 17-year-old Germany Under-19 international has indicated that he will not sign a new contract at the Volkswagen Arena, with his current deal expiring next summer.


Brandt is not short of admirers, with Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho keen to take him to Stamford Bridge, while Bayer Leverkusen and Bayern Munich are also circling.

But the vulture that wins the race will have to wait until next summer to enjoy Brandt, even if he is persuaded to commit to a club before his current contract runs out.

Wolfsburg sporting director Klaus Allofs said: "There are no signs that indicate that he is going to move before next summer."

The deal-maker also bemoaned Brandt choosing to seek his fortune elsewhere, remarking: "He could have taken his first professional steps with us."

Wolfsburg coach Dieter Hecking is likewise disappointed to lose the 17-year-old winger, but revealed his firm feeling that Brandt was never serious about continuing at the Volkswagen Arena.

"I never felt that he was going to get involved in the negotiations", said the former Nurnberg boss.

Brandt has been in superb form for Wolfsburg's youth team this term, scoring five goals and laying on six assists in just seven competitive matches.
