Maximilian Philipp joins Wolfsburg from Dynamo Moscow

Wolfsburg have strengthened their squad with the signing of forward Maximilian Philipp on loan from Dynamo Moscow.

26-year-old Philipp, who can play across the front line, returns to the Bundesliga after just one year in Russia.

The former Germany under-21 international will wear the number 17 jersey for the Wolves.

Dynamo signed Philipp from Borussia Dortmund for €20m and he scored eight goals in 20 league games last season.

However, as Kicker reports, he wanted to go back to Germany and was even willing to take a pay-cut to facilitate a move.

He will reportedly earn one third of his €4m annual salary while at Wolfsburg.

Philipp almost joined Wolfsburg before moving to Moscow, but the deal was cancelled when Josip Brekalo decided to stay.

He is VfL’s fourth signing of the summer after Bartosz Bialek, Maxence Lacroix and Ridle Baku.
