Wolfsburg signs Jakub Blaszczykowski from Borussia Dortmund
WOLFSBURG, Germany (AP) — Wolfsburg has signed Poland midfielder Jakub Blaszczykowski from Bundesliga rival Borussia Dortmund.
Wolfsburg says the 30-year-old Blaszczykowski signed a deal to 2019. Both clubs agreed not to disclose the transfer fee. Kicker magazine reports a fee of around 5 million euros ($5.6 million).
Wolfsburg sporting director Klaus Allofs says, "Blaszczykowski is a player that will do any team good. Not only because of his footballing capabilities, but also because he is a model of dedication, commitment and passion and because he gives 100% to his team."
Blaszczykowski, who played 197 Bundesliga games for Dortmund, winning the league in 2011 and 2012, spent last season on loan at Serie A side Fiorentina.
Injuries hampered his time in Italy, though he impressed at Euro 2016 with Poland.
