He will join fellow new arrival Mike Hanke in leading the line for Christian Streich's side at home and in Europe next season, and should he impress, the Black Forest club have secured an option to make the deal permanent.

The 24-year-old did not feature for the Wolves last season due to a serious knee injury.

However, he is now on the road to recovery and should be fit to help Freiburg next season.

"We are delighted to have signed a highly-interesting player who, despite being only 24, has already gained lots of experience," said Freiburg's interim director of sport Klemens Hartenbach.

"We are aware that Vaclav needs to follow a personal training regime to start with and there is no set date for him to start training with the team."

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
