WOLFSBURG, Germany (AP) - Wolfsburg has signed Poland midfielder Jakub Blaszczykowski from Bundesliga rival Borussia Dortmund.

Wolfsburg says the 30-year-old Blaszczykowski signed a deal to 2019. Both clubs agreed not to disclose the transfer fee. Kicker magazine reports a fee of around 5 million euros ($5.6 million).

Wolfsburg sporting director Klaus Allofs says, “Blaszczykowski is a player that will do any team good. Not only because of his footballing capabilities, but also because he is a model of dedication, commitment and passion and because he gives 100 per cent to his team.”

Blaszczykowski, who played 197 Bundesliga games for Dortmund, winning the league in 2011 and 2012, spent last season on loan at Serie A side Fiorentina. Injuries hampered his time in Italy, though he impressed at Euro 2016 with Poland.
