Chelsea star completes £22m Wolfsburg switch

Chelsea have sold Andre Schurrle to Wolfsburg for around £22million with the winger penning a four-and-a-half year deal at his new club, the BBC reports.

The 24-year-old was often used as a late substitute by Jose Mourinho, a factor that has made his playing time at Stamford Bridge very limited.

Schurrle, who joined from Bayer Leverkusen for a fee of £18million back in 2013, played a part in Germany’s World Cup winning run in the summer, scoring two goals.

However, upon his return to the Premier League, he was unable to secure a regular first team role, making only five starts and appearing from the bench a further nine times, netting just three times in the process.

The departure of the forward is said to have helped secure the successful transfer of Juan Cuadrado who joined from Fiorentina.

He completed his switch to London for about £23.3million, signing a four-and-a-half year deal with his new side.
