Croatia striker Ivica Olic will switch from Bayern Munich to German league rivals Wolfsburg next season having signed a two-year contract, he confirmed Thursday.

The 32-year-old, who has spent three seasons in Munich, confirmed the news after flying back from Spain with Bayern after their Champions League semi-final victory over Real Madrid.

"Ivica is an absolute professional," said Wolfsburg coach Felix Magath, who coached Wolves to the 2009 German league title.

"His will and his hunger to play are exemplary.

"He has always been a performer for any team he plays for and I am sure he will bring those qualities to our team."

Olic lost his place in Bayern's first-team after a series of injuries and while he is set to star for Croatia at Euro 2012 in June, he has scored just two goals this season in 19 league appearances, 16 of which were off the bench.
