Wolfsburg midfielder Willi Evseev will join Nurnberg on a three-year deal at the end of the season. The 22-year-old, who made his debut for Dieter Hecking's team in October, has only been involved in two first-team matches for the Bundesliga side since and has signed a contract which keeps him at Stadion Nurnberg until 2017.

The former German U-18 international told his new club's official website, www.fcn.de: "I have to thank a lot of people in Wolfsburg. Under Dieter Hecking, I had the chance to experience Bundesliga football. But I have decided not to extend my contract at Wolfsburg.

"The conversations I had with (Nurnberg coach) Gertjan Verbeek and (chairman) Martin Bader made it clear what the club has in store for me. There are a lot of examples that show how good a decision it is to move to Nurnberg as a young player."

Nurnberg chairman Bader was delighted with the club's new signing and is looking forward to welcoming the Kazakhstan-born midfield man in the summer. He said: "The club have proven that young and talented players are key to the philosophy.

"We are confident that Willi fits in and has the right character for this club. He has shown that through his performances in Wolfsburg."
