The Bundesliga side said in a statement on Tuesday that Hleb will leave the club on 31 December.

Wolfsburg coach Felix Magath said, “this is very, very unfortunate. I would have gladly taken up the option to sign Hleb [permanently] but the recurring injury problems prevent that.”

Hleb made only four league appearances, three as a substitute, since joining on the final day of the transfer market on 31 August.

Hleb said the setback “hits me hard, of course, because I had great plans here in Germany.”

Hleb is in Munich to fix a muscle problem.
