Podolski to Leave Bayern

German international Lukas Podolski has agreed to a deal with Bundesliga team Cologne.

This deal takes effect at the end of the current season and will end a long unhappy streak for Podolski at Bayern.

Podolski was frequently overlooked by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, who preferred to start Luca Toni and Miroslav Klose and even Landon Donovan was starting over Podolski.

The 23 year old Podolski started his career at Cologne who were just promoted back to the top tier of the Bundesliga this season. 

The deal will cost Cologne approximately 10 million euro.

Podolski said, "I am glad the decision for my future has been taken and all speculation about me is finally over."
