Freiburg midfielder Sascha Riether has become Felix Magath's second new signing at Wolfsburg.

The 24-year-old former Germany Under 21 international captain has agreed a three-year deal at the VW Arena after spending nine years with Freiburg.

"I always felt very much at home in Freiburg, but I have now decided to take on a new sporting challenge with Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga," Riether told Wolves' official website.

Magath also expressed his delight at the signing, which followed just two days after 1860 Munich youngster Daniel Baier agreed to join the club.

He added: "I'm happy that in Sascha Riether we have been able to get hold of another young and ambitious player."
