German champions VfL Wolfsburg have announced the arrival of Nigerian striker Obafemi Martins from Newcastle United.

“This is exactly the type of player that we had been looking for, in addition to Grafite and Edin Dzeko,” said Wolfsburg manager Armin Veh. “He isn’t just fast, he also proved to be dangerous in front of the goal.”

“Since he can play on the wing, we will now have the possibility to field two or three strikers. Despite his young age, he gained a lot of experience in Italy and England and also knows the Champions League.

The 24-year-old came to Europe as a youth player, joining Reggiana in 2000. Martins made his breakthrough while playing for Internazionale from 2001 to 2006, after which he joined Newcastle.
