Wolfsburg signing Schurrle: Why I decided to leave Chelsea

Wolfsburg signing Andre Schurrle admits the reality of being only a bit-part player at Chelsea convinced him to leave.

The midfielder joined Wolfsburg in a £24.6million deal on transfer deadline day.

Schurrle said: "I wanted to stay but in the last month I leaned towards changing something because I wanted to do what is fun for me - and that is to play football.

"I could only do it briefly at Chelsea in the past weeks.

"I had a good time with Chelsea.

"I'm still confident and know what I can do."
