Germany striker Kevin Volland has left Bayer Leverkusen to sign a four-year contract with AS Monaco, the French Ligue 1 side announced Wednesday, in a deal worth around 11m euros ($13m).

As Leverkusen coach Peter Bosz hinted Monday, the 28-year old leaves the club after scoring 50 goals, creating 32 more, in 148 appearances over four years for the Bundesliga side.

This is the first time Volland has joined a club outside Germany.

He will link up with Monaco's new German-born head coach Niko Kovac, the former Croatian international who was sacked by Bayern Munich last November, but earned his first Ligue 1 victory Sunday with a 1-0 win over Metz.

Volland has also made 10 appearances for Germany, scoring a goal in the 8-0 drubbing of minnow San Marino in 2016.

According to a club source, the transfer fee is 11m euros with various added bonuses.

Volland, formerly of Hoffenheim, is Monaco's second major signing of the transfer window after the arrival of promising centre-back Axel Disasi from Reims.

Leverkusen sporting director Simon Rolfes praised Volland's "exemplary commitment" over the last four years and said the striker leaves with the German club's blessing. 

Leverkusen are also poised to lose Germany playmaker Kai Havertz, 21, who is expected to join Chelsea in the coming days in a transfer deal estimated to be worth 100m euros.
