Philipp Johannes Wollscheid (born 6 March 1989) is a German footballer who plays as a centre back for VfL Wolfsburg on loan from Stoke City.

Wollscheid began his career playing amateur football for various clubs in Saarland. He progressed to semi-professional level with SV Rot-Weiss Hasborn in 2007 and then 1. FC Saarbrücken. He was released by Saarbrücken in the summer of 2009 and then joined 1. FC Nürnberg following a successful trial. After spending time playing for the second team he broke into the Nürnberg first team and became a regular in the Bundesliga. His performances for Nürnberg saw him transfer to Bayer Leverkusen in July 2012. Wollscheid was a regular under Sami Hyypiä at Leverkusen in 2012–13 and 2013–14. However he fell out of favor with new manager Roger Schmidt and joined 1. FSV Mainz 05 on loan in August 2014. Wollscheid joined English side Stoke City on loan in January 2015 which was made permanent at the end of the season.
