Timo Gebhart leaves VfB

The 23 year old midfielder will join up with 1. FC Nürnberg for the 2012/2013 season.

VfB Stuttgart and 1. FC Nürnberg have agreed basic terms on the transfer of Timo Gebhart. The 23 year old will be wearing the colours of the side from the Franken region as from the beginning of the 2012/2013 season. Information on the fee involved in the deal remains undisclosed.

Since January 2009, Gebhart has played 76 Bundesliga games for VfB, scoring four goals. This current season, the pacy winger has been consistently troubled by injury and could only make twelve appearances.Director of Sport Fredi Bobic commented: “After three and a half years at VfB, Timo was in search of a new challenge. We wish him all the best at 1. FC Nürnberg.”

Gebhart himself commented on the move to FCN: “I’m leaving VfB with a tear and a smile. A tear because I did enjoy the greater portion of my time at VfB and a smile because I am looking forward to the new challenge. Bidding farewell to the fans is particularly tough for me because they have always given me such great support. My genuine, heartfelt thanks for that.”
