German club Wolfsburg have joined the race to sign Ghanaian midfielder Reinhold Yabo. The 21-year-old will be leaving FC Koln at the end of the current season when his contract expires.
The Germany youth international who is the nephew of ex Black Stars defender Anthony Baffoe is also being chased by Stuttgart, Hoffenheim and Augsburg.
Wolfsburg however look the more likely destination for Yabo who has only featured for the Koln second team this season.
?At FC Koln he (Yabo) could not make use of his opportunities this season for various reasons,? Koln sporting director Joerg Jacob said.
?Of course, we wish that every talented hone-grown player remains here but it is reasonable that he looks for a change in scenery. For Reinhold, it is time for a fresh start.?
Yab was born in the German town of Aldenhoevn to a Ghanaian father and a Congolese mother. He captained the Germany U17 team to European glory in 2009.
