Forward Maximilian Philipp is leaving VfL Wolfsburg to join SC Freiburg – a club where he played his youth football. The Wolves have come to an agreement with SCF on a loan which will run until 30 June 2024.
The 29-year-old joined the club in summer 2020 from Russian side Dynamo Moscow, originally on loan before VfL made the deal a permanent one a year later. In January 2023, he moved to Werder Bremen and played for them on loan until the end of the season. Philipp has made 54 appearances for the Green-and-Whites to date, scoring seven goals and setting up another six, finding the back of the net twice against RB Leipzig on Matchday 33 of the 2020/21 season in what ended up a 2-2 draw that gave the Wolves the point they needed to qualify for the UEFA Champions League.
