The great news keeps coming for Wolfsburg fans as Jerome Roussillon extended his contract by a further year until 30 June 2023. The left-back follows captain Josuha Guilavogui in committing his long-term future to the Green-Whites.
“Jerome has adapted to the Bundesliga in a very short space of time and already proven his quality in impressive fashion during his first year,” said VfL sporting director Marcel Schäfer. “He’s not reached his peak yet, which makes us all the more delighted that he’s part of our long-term planning.”
‘Best place for me to develop’
“I’ve been warmly welcomed by the players, staff and fans here and that’s helped me to feel at home straight away, on and off the pitch,” said Roussillon. “VfL is the best place for me to keep developing and I’m very grateful to the management for putting so much faith in me. We’re on a good track and I’ll do my best to help the team’s continued success.”
Roussillon moved to Wolfsburg from HSC Montpellier last summer and has impressed during his maiden season in Germany, particularly with his runs down the wing and accurate passing. The 26-year-old has registered three goals and six assists in 28 games for VfL.
