Wolfsburg have secured the services of Kaiserslautern attacker Srdjan Lakic on a Bosman move.
Ambitious Bundesliga outfit Wolfsburg have completed the signing of Croatian attacker Srdjan Lakic from Kaiserslautern on a free transfer. The striker has signed a contract until the summer of 2015 with his new club and will join the Woelfe at the end of the 2010-11 campaign.

Wolfsburg were looking for attacking reinforcements because of the departure of Edin Dzeko to Manchester City earlier this month and head coach Steve McClaren sees the 27-year-old Lakic as the perfect replacement.

"Lakic is a classic striker who really adds something to the team with his dynamic style. He always works hard and is very dangerous in front of the goal. We're very happy that we've manged to sign him, despite the stiff competition from a few other teams," said sporting director Dieter Hoeness on the Wolfsburg site.

The striker joined Kaiserslautern from Hertha Berlin in the summer of 2008 and had since become a key player at 1FCK. Nevertheless, Lakic was reluctant to sign a new contract with Kaiserslautern and is eagerly anticipating a new challenge.

"I'm very happy that the transfer is a done deal now and I'm looking forward to a new challenge. Wolfsburg are a big club with ambitious goals and I'm hopeful of playing a big role in the club's future," commented Lakic.
