In addition to reporting on rumors linking Maximilian Philipp with a move to Hertha BSC, the Wolfsburger Allgemeine Zeitung claims that Luca Waldschmidt may be on the verge of a loan-out to VfB Stuttgart.

Linked with seemingly every Bundesliga side during the current window, Waldschmidt recently made a case to remain in the plans of VfL trainer Niko Kovac's side with some impressive performances off the bench. The paper nevertheless claims that Wolfsburg and Stuttgart have worked out a loan deal for the 26-year-old. Waldschmidt will be reunited with former head-coach Bruno Labbadia, under whom he played at HSV.
Wolfsburg have already allowed Jerome Roussillon and Josip Brekalo to depart during the current transfer window. Club sporting CEO Jörg Schmadtke - who will be leaving the club after the transfer window closes on Tuesday - may not wish to slash the active roster down to a possibly untenable 23 players as his final action with the club.
