Augsburg of Germany defender, Felix Uduokhai could be heading back to his parent club, VfL Wolfsburg this summer, as feelers have emerged that The Wolves are keen on having him back fully at the end of the current season, megasportsarena.com gathered.
Uduokhai’s stock has hit an all-time high in the ongoing campaign, which he has spent on loan from Wolfsburg, such that the German Bundesliga side believe he has finally come off age, and they are now looking at the possibility of having him in their main squad for next season.
With that projection in mind, crunch talks are billed to hold about the youngster’s future in the coming weeks, with the possibility of the former Germany under-21 international, who joined their Bundesliga rivals, Augsburg on a season-long loan last summer bound to return to his preferred ground.
Uduokhai only made the move to Augsburg because Wolfsburg felt he needed to get more exposure and experience from playing on a regular basis in a less-competitive squad, which The Wolves believe had been achieved to a large extent for the first half of the current season.
Although Augsburg should have a say on Uduokhai’s future, as there was a purchase clause set at ten million euros inserted into the defender’s loan deal, Wolfsburg’s sports director, Marcel Schäfer believes the modest outfit will not exercise their purchase option to buy the lad, who has been involved in 18 Bundesliga matches this season, covering a total of 1,306 minutes.
Rather than think of a slim chance of being able to get Uduokhai back into Wolfsburg’s scheme of affairs ahead of next season, Schäfer named the Nigerian-born youngster alongside three other lads that are currently out of the club on loan elsewhere, who he believes should be back with his team at the end of the current campaign, once coronavirus fades away.
Schäfer told fussballtransfers.com: “As of today, I assume that Felix, Yunus Malli, Jeffrey Bruma and John Yeboah will come back to us in the summer.”
