Schurrle leaves Chelsea to join Wolfsburg

Andre Schurrle has completed his move from Chelsea to German Bundesliga side Wolfsburg for a fee of around £22m.

The 24-year-old, a World Cup winner with Germany last summer, made 64 appearances for the Blues after arriving in the summer of 2013.

But, despite starting the season in the side, he has struggled to hold down a first-team place because of a combination of illness and mixed form.

Manager Jose Mourinho has preferred Willian alongside Eden Hazard as the second wide player in Chelsea’s 4-2-3-1 system, meaning Schurrle has only made the starting line-up in the Premier League five times this season.
