Keeper Jentzsch joins Wolfsburg pack

TSV 1860 München goalkeeper Simon Jentzsch is to move to Bundesliga rivals VfL Wolfsburg in the summer.

TSV 1860 München goalkeeper Simon Jentzsch is to move to Bundesliga rivals VfL Wolfsburg in the summer. The clubs have reportedly agreed a fee in the region of €3m for the player, who will sign a five-year contract.

Contract rebel
Jentzsch, who is rated as one of Germany's top young keepers, recently turned down a new contract with 1860 for financial reasons. The Munich club activated a clause in his original deal, however, extending it by a season to 2004 to prevent him leaving on a free transfer. The 26-year-old has made 94 top-flight appearances for the Olympiastadion side.

New No1
Jentzsch will replace the current Wolfsburg No1 Claus Reitmaier, coach Jürgen Röber confirmed. "Claus must know what he will be letting himself in for as No2," Röber said. Meanwhile, 1860 are to sign the FC Energie Cottbus custodian Andre Lenz as Jentzsch's successor. The 29-year-old will be available on a free transfer from relegation candidates Energie.
