After spending 10 seasons at Borussia Mönchengladbach, Oscar Wendt will be leaving the club when his contract expires this summer.


The 35-year-old veteran will be heading back to his home country, Sweden, to play for IFK Göteborg, 'Die Fohlen' confirmed on Tuesday.

"Oscar Wendt has had a fantastic journey here in the last decade, which can be seen among other things by the six seasons competing in Europe. He also has more Bundesliga appearances for Borussia than any other foreign player in the club’s history. That shows just how important he has been to us," said Gladbach sporting director Max Eberl.

"Oscar will now try with the rest of the team to win as many games as possible in the remainder of the season. After that, we will wish him all the best for what lies ahead."

Wendt, who joined Gladbach from Danish side FC Copenhagen in 2011, commented:

"I am extremely grateful for the fantastic time I've had here at Borussia. I am 100 percent a Foal and obviously I'm sad to be leaving the club this summer. For me and my family, however, the time has come for us to go back home to Sweden.


"Above all, I will miss all the people that I’ve worked with, won with, lost with, laughed with and cried with over the last decade at Borussia. I will also miss the games at a packed Borussia-Park, of course – I’ll miss the amazing fans and their unconditional support for Borussia."

The left-back has made a total of 299 appearances for Gladbach, racking up 19 goals and 21 assists.
