"The contract will become effective on July 1, provided Navidkia can pass a medical test on his injured left knee," VfL Bochum spokesman Christian Gruber told IRNA.
"We don't know the exact severity of his knee injury but if Navidkia's recuperation goes according to plan, the contract will go into effect," he added.
The former Sepahan Isfahan half-back suffered two weeks ago a torn ligament on his left knee during Iran's Olympic qualifier against South Korea. Navidkia who is the third Iranian footballer to join Bochum after Mehdi Mahdavikia and Vahid Hashemian, was voted Iran's player of the year in 2003.
The 21-year-old player is considered as one of Asia's greatest football talents.
