Atlético agree loan move for Guilavogui to Wolfsburg
French midfielder Josuha Guilavogui will leave Atlético Madrid on loan once more, after Wolfsburg confirmed they have an agreement with the Spanish side.
Klaus Allofs, the sporting director of Bundesliga side Wolfsburg, has confirmed that his club have reached an agreement with Atlético Madrid, to sign Josuha Guilavogui on loan for the 2014-2015 season.
“We have an agreement in principal with the player and Atlético. Our aim is to have him with us as soon as possible.”
Although there are the formalities of a medical and paperwork to be signed, the move for Guilavogui will shortly be completed. He was also linked with a move to England this summer, with Arsenal and Everton reportedly interested, but the German side always remained confident they could secure a deal with Atlético.
The 23-year-old defensive midfielder arrived Atlético Madrid in a €10 million deal from Saint Etienne at the very end of the summer transfer window last year, but after spending most of the first half of the season on the substitutes bench, he was eventually loaned back to the French side in the January transfer window.
During the 2013-2014 season, Guilavogui made 7 appearances for Atlético Madrid, followed by 9 for Saint Etienne.
