Berlin: Brazilian international midfielder Luiz Gustavo has completed his transfer from European champions Bayern Munich to their Bundesliga rivals Wolfsburg, the buying club confirmed on Friday.

"We are delighted to have him with us," declared Wolfsburg sporting director Klaus Allofs after making official a transfer that had been announced in German media reports on Wednesday.

The 26-year-old has signed a five-year deal at the Volkswagen Arena as he looks to cement his place in the Brazil squad ahead of next year's World Cup, although no transfer fee has been announced.
