Nurnberg sign Wolfsburg starlet

Nurnberg have completed the signing of 19-year-old forward Nassim Ben Khalifa from Wolfsburg.

The Switzerland international has joined Nurnberg on a 18-month loan deal that will see him stay with the club until the summer of 2012.

"Nassim is another young, talented player who wants to make steps forward in his development at der Club. In talks with Nassim, he has shown that he brings the right attitude to strengthen our squad. We are pleased that we have found with Wolfsburg a good loan opportunity for both sides," Nuernberg manager Martin Bader told his club's official website.

"I'm looking forward to playing at FC Nuernberg. My goal is to make the next step after becoming a key player in the Swiss U-21 team. I decided in the summer to continue my development in the Bundesliga. Therefore it's logical for me to remain in the Bundesliga. I will give everything for the Nuernberg cause," Nassim Ben Khalifa said.
