Sveindis Jonsdottir signs new contract

Iceland international extends deal through to 2025.

Fresh from picking up her Women’s Bundesliga-winners medal, Sveindis Jonsdottir has added another year to her contract with the Green-and-Whites. The Iceland international had originally signed a deal keeping her at the club until 2024, but she has penned an early extension that ties her to VfL through to 30 June 2025.

The pacy attacker originally joined the club in December 2020 but only made her She-Wolves debut at the start of the second half of this season, having gone out on loan to Swedish club Kristianstads DFF. The 20-year-old played her first match in a VfL jersey at the end of January away to Potsdam and has since gone on to make 14 appearances – eight in the FLYERALARM Women’s Bundesliga, two in the DFB Cup and four in the UEFA Women’s Champions League.

“Ideal environment”

“VfL Wolfsburg give me the ideal environment to continue my development over the coming years,” Jonsdottir said. “Working with the team and the coaching staff is really fun and also off the pitch, they do everything they can to make sure that you genuinely feel at home in Wolfsburg. This is why I see my future at VfL, and at the end of the day, there’s plenty that we want to achieve as a team together over the coming years!”

“Truly amazing development”

“When you take into account the fact that Sveindis had not played in one of the genuine top leagues before, her development over recent weeks and months has been truly amazing,” said Ralf Kellermann, sporting director of VfL Women. “What really caught the eye is how comfortable she looked at the absolute highest level, in the Champions League – and let’s not forget that she’s only 20 years old and has plenty of scope to make further progress, which is why we’re all the more delighted that Sveindis has already chosen to extend her contract by another season.”
