The German coach had an infamous bust-up with the Denmark international after being appointed at the helm at the beginning of the 2010/11 season and employed him sparingly. Last season, he was shipped off to loan to Serie A side Roma and Kjaer had declared that he would never play under Magath again.
Brought to the Bundesliga by then-manager Steve McClaren in 2009, the Denmark international has had a poor time in the Bundesliga with his marking being especially criticised by observers of the German game.
But it appears as if the club's inability to sell the central defender as well as the passage of time has cooled tensions at the club and Magath has promised to offer the Dane another opportunity to reclaim a place in the starting XI. He will have to compete with the likes of Naldo, Marco Russ, Emanuel Pogatetz and Sortirios Kyrgiakos but some impressive performances in Euro 2012 have renewed his standing in European football.
"The club and the player wanted to go their separate ways, however, the market has not made this possible. Nothing ever happened," Magath told reporters at a press conference.
"Kjaer will just have to adapt.
"Simon is a good player with great skill. If he works hard, everything will turn out well."
Earlier last month, he had made similar comments to Ekstra Bladet when he had said: "There has been a lot of misunderstanding in the media, but Simon Kjaer is contracted to Wolfsburg and he will of course get a new chance here."
"Every player at Wolfsburg will get a new chance."
Wolfsburg start their new Bundesliga campaign with a visit to Stuttgart and they play Schonberg 95 in the DFB Pokal first round on Sunday.
