Joao Victor Santos sá--one of many Brazilian footballers who have opted for the moniker Joao Victor--is confirmed to be on his way out of the Bundesliga after a two-year stint with Germany's green company team.

Victor followed former Wolfsburg trainer Oliver Glasner from LASK Linz to Germany when the former assumed the Wolfsburg head-coaching position ahead of the 2019/20 season. 

The player remains under contract with die Wölfe through 2023, meaning that the club may still garner a transfer free for him. Victor's estimated market value remains last €3 million. The 27-year-old made 70 competitive appearances with his German club, scoring nine goals in the process. 

German footballing magazine Kicker reports that the winger/fullback is headed to the U.A.E.
