Simon Kjaer: Spent last season on loan at Wolfsburg after falling out with Felix Magath
Felix Magath is prepared to bury his differences with Simon Kjaer and offer the defender a fresh start at Wolfsburg.
Relations between the pair remain strained, with Kjaer having previously claimed that he will never play for the club again under Magath's tutelage.
He was sent out on loan to Roma last season as a result and it appeared as though a summer move was inevitable.
Kjaer has been linked with Newcastle United, Lille and Fiorentina since the transfer window opened, but he remains on the books at Wolfsburg.
Magath now claims that he is willing to forgive and forget and bring the Denmark international back into his first team plans.
"There has been a lot of misunderstanding in the media, but Simon Kjaer is contracted to Wolfsburg and he will of course get a new chance here," he told Ekstra Bladet.
"Every player at Wolfsburg will get a new chance.
"I don't know if he will stay, but if nothing materialises then we will see how he fits in."
Kjaer admits there is a chance that he will remain at Wolfsburg for the 2012/13 campaign, but has refused to rule out the possibility of taking on a new challenge.
"As things stand, I can't rule out that I will stay," he said.
"If I stay I will make the best of it. But things change very quickly in football and if we agree to do something else, the situation will be different."
