Diego hungry for new Wolfsburg deal

Created on 21 Nov., 2012 5:04 PM GMT

Wolfsburg midfielder Diego is looking to land himself a new contract with the Bundesliga club.

The Brazilian's deal ends in June 2014 and he has admitted he's hoping to sign an extension at the Volkswagen Arena, despite reported interest from the club he went on loan to last season, Atletico Madrid.

Speaking after the 3-1 victory over Hoffenheim on Sunday, Diego said to reporters:

"Yes, I am working towards it (the contract extension).

"First of all, we have to make sure that we are successful in the current season, but if we reach our goals, the future will be good as well."

Diego, who moved from Juventus to Germany in 2010 for a club record 15.5 million euros, dedicated their victory over Hoffenheim to Wolves' new sporting director Klaus Allofs.

He added: "I am very happy for Klaus, that we were able to start by getting the three points."

Wolfsburg are currently without a manager having sacked Felix Magath at the end of last month, with Lorenz-Gunther Kostner taking over in a caretaker role.
