Obafemi Martins has sealed his move to Bundesliga Champions Wolfsburg according to the German club.
Obafemi Martins-Will join exciting German side
Martins was pulled out the Leeds game at the last minute amidst rumors of a possible deal to Wolfsburg. Today Wolfsburg have announced that Martins has signed a four year deal. He will join the Champions League newcomers in what has to be an exciting move for Oba.
We wish him luck as he was a popular and exciting player. His wages were just too high to maintain in the Championship and no one can fault him for joining a burgeoning side in Wolfsburg.
There is also news that Manchester City are in the race to sign Sebastien Bassong. While Bassong’s wages are not a problem, it seems he is determined to play in the Championship next season.
Since Seb is so young and promising maybe a loan deal could suit both club and player in hopes that Newcastle will be back up next season. This is highly unlikely since Ashley could easily net about £9M in a deal for Bassong after paying only £500K for him last year.
