Martins hopes to run with the Wolves

Published Add your comment

Newcastle striker Obafemi Martins wants to join German champions Wolfsburg.

The Nigerian appears unwilling to hang around at St James' Park following United's relegation from the Barclays Premier League.

"The Bundesliga will soon be the best league in the world," he said in the Wolfsburger Allgemeine Zeitung.

He added: "Therefore Wolfsburg excites me. I hope the transfer happens."

Martins would be hard-pressed to win a first-team place with Wolfsburg, whose front two of Grafite and Edin Dzeko scored 53 Bundesliga goals between them last term.
