Yannick Gerhardt will remain part of the Wolfpack for the foreseeable future after the midfielder’s contract, which was set to expire in the summer, was extended for an additional four years until 2025 after the club management reached an agreement with the 26-year-old.
The left-footer, who has one senior cap for Germany, joined VfL in 2016 from 1. FC Köln and has since made 105 appearances for the Green-and-Whites, scoring five times. Gerhardt has two assists in 13 games in the Bundesliga this season, making seven starts.
Sporting future at VfL
“I see my sporting future in Wolfsburg and that’s why I decided to continue wearing the VfL shirt,” Gerhardt said. “I feel at home here and want to play my part in helping VfL consistently qualify for Europe. I want to help the team and my aim is to have even more playing time. I’m really looking forward to the coming years.”
Sporting director Marcel Schäfer described the extension as an “important signal in terms of our planning beyond the summer. Yannick decided with complete conviction to play for VfL for another four years, and he fully identifies with the path we’re on.”
