Sky Sports reporter Andy Burton is reporting that Andre Schurrle’s proposed move to Wolfsburg is nearing completion saying: “I’ve been having a look on the Bundesliga website because Andre Schurrle’s name has appeared on what they call a DFB transfer list, which indicates that this deal is edging closer.

“Once all parties have agreed terms and the player concerned has passed his medical, the move has to be made official. This is done by registering it on the Deutsche Football Liga transfer list – a prerequisite for the issuing of a playing permit.

“It goes on to say they had to get that in by midday, then they have five hours to get the transfer across the line.”
