Wolfsburg complete signing of former Aston Villa and West Ham midfielder Thomas Hitzlsperger

Hitzlsperger, renowned for his ferocious left foot, made his name at Aston Villa before a successful spell at Stuttgart and less auspicious one at Lazio.

He had been linked with a host of Premier League clubs.

The midfielder said: ''I am overjoyed that the transfer has gone through. This is the beginning of a great partnership. The club has big ambitions and a coach who epitomises this.

''I am looking forward to being part of the team, already know some of the players who I have played with at club or international level.

''I am highly motivated and very very happy to take up the challenge.''

The Wolves have won one and lost one of their opening two games of the Bundesliga season.
