Former Germany captain and Chelsea midfielder Michael Ballack is poised to sign for Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen, German sports agency SID reported on Friday.

The 33-year-old, ruled out of Germany's World Cup side through injury, was released by the English Premier League champions at the end of the season and said he wanted to continue his career in his home country.

Three Bundesliga clubs - Hamburg, Bayer Leverkusen and Wolfsburg - reportedly showed interest in the powerful midfielder, along with Liverpool and Tottenham in the Premier League and at least one Spanish outfit.

Ballack, currently on holiday with his family in Sardinia, will sign a two-year contract with Leverkusen when he returns, SID reported.
