Wolfsburg are closing in on the signing of Barcelona attacker Aliaksandr Hleb, according to reports from Germany.

After struggling to earn regular playing time in Spain, the Belarussian has spent loan spells at Stuttgart and Birmingham City, and, according to Kicker, is now on the verge of returning to Germany to play under Felix Magath. Having agreed to personal terms, he is reportedly in Lower Saxony to undergo a medical check.

With his contract set to expire next summer, Barca are reportedly willing to release Hleb for €1.5 million (£1.3m) rather than watch him leave on a free transfer.

The 30-year-old Hleb is no stranger to the Bundesliga, having played at Stuttgart from 2000 to 2005 before his loan spell in Swabia for the 2009-10 season. In April he expressed his desire to return to the Bundesliga, and now he appears to have had his wish granted.
