VfL Wolfsburg have completed the signing of French winger Paul-Georges Ntep until 2021 from Rennes. The fee is thought to be around €5 million, according to Transfermarkt.de.
“We have intensively followed his progress over recent years and we are very happy that Paul-Georges Ntep has now opted for the move to VfL. He is a typical winger, with abilities which will enrich our attacking game. He is fast, strong in one-on-one situation, is dangerous in front of goal and has a good exe for his team mates. We firmly believe his development will continue at VfL and that he can make the next step in his career with us,” commented Director of Sport Olaf Rebbe.
Head-coach Valérien Ismaël: “With Paul-Georges, we have distinctly improved the quality we possess on the wing. He is extremely pacy, technically gifted and, for such a young player, he is very experienced. His signing makes us more flexible tactically and even more difficult to reckon with going forward.”
Ntep has scored 18 Ligue 1 goals for Rennes in 74 league matches. The 24-year-old will wear the No. 9.
