December 18, 2006

BERLIN, Dec 18 (Reuters) - Bayern Munich midfielder Julio Dos Santos is joining VfL Wolfsburg on a loan deal running until the end of the season.

Bayern, who announced the move on Monday, signed Dos Santos for €2million 12 months ago.

The Bavarians see the Paraguay international as a possible replacement for Michael Ballack in the long term but so far he has had few chances.

He has a contract at Bayern running until June 30, 2009.
