Kyrgiakos heads to Wolves

Liverpool have confirmed that defender Sotirios Kyrgiakos has joined Wolfsburg.

The Greece international has signed a two-year contract with the German club although no fee has been announced.

"Liverpool FC this afternoon [Monday] confirmed that Sotirios Kyrgiakos had left the club and joined Bundesliga outfit Wolfsburg," a statement on Liverpool's website read.

Kyrgiakos made 49 appearances for Liverpool after joining the club from AEK Athens in the summer of 2009.

The 32-year-old made 28 of those last term although his first-team opportunities were reduced when Kenny Dalglish returned as manager.

Kyrgiakos revealed he was looking forward to returning to Germany after spending two seasons at Eintracht Frankfurt from 2006 to 2008.

"Wolfsburg are a good club. They won the championship in 2009," he told the club's official website.

"I'm here to play and I would like to play every game.

"I am fit and ready, but the coach decides when and if I get to play."
