Askhan Dejagah has re-signed for his former club VfL Wolfsburg after undergoing training on Monday morning, the club confirmed.
Should the 30-year-old excel, there is an option for a further year at the club.
“I am truly delighted to be back in Wolfsburg again and I am really fired up about playing in the Bundesliga. VfL are currently in a difficult situation and I want to help them get out of that as quickly as possible. A lot has occurred and developed in Wolfsburg since I left and being a part of this club again makes me very, very proud. I’d like to thank Olaf Rebbe and Valérien Ismaël for giving me this chance. I intend to pay that belief back with my performances,” said Ashkan Dejagah.
Sporting director Olaf Rebbe: “Over the past few days, we have repeatedly commented on our wish to make use of the transfer window, if a spontaneous opportunity should arise or if a creative solution should become available. In Ashkan, we have signed an experienced footballer, who is eager to play for VfL Wolfsburg and is a true team player. With his versatility, we have a further option available to us in the squad.”
Dejagah played 132 Bundesliga games for Wolfsburg in his first stint, scoring 18 goals.
