Martins having Wolfsburg medical
Posted: 31 July 2009
Obafemi Martins is having a medical at Bundesliga club Wolfsburg on Friday morning.
The Nigeria forward and his representatives were locked in negotiations with the German champions for most of Thursday and although the discussions are continuing, an agreement is said to be 'close'.
Newcastle agreed a 10.5 Euro fee with the German club on Wednesday night and the forward flew out the next day to Germany.
When concluded, the deal will see Martins return to playing Champions League football.
