Dennis Aogo joins VfB Stuttgart with immediate effect. The 30-year-old left-footer has signed on with the Cannstatt Boys until June 30th, 2019 and will wear the number 3 jersey with the infamous red hoop.
Until the end of last season, Dennis Aogo was under contract at FC Schalke 04. The twelve-time German international has made a total of 213 Bundesliga appearances in his career for SC Freiburg, Hamburger SV and FC Schalke 04, as well as playing 45 UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League games for Schalke and Hamburg.
Jochen Röttgermann, Director of Marketing and Sales:
“In Dennis Aogo, we have secured the services of a nationally and internationally very experienced player, who has proven his qualities wherever he has played. He knows the Bundesliga very well and will thus need little time to get integrated. We are very happy to have been able to convince him of the direction we are taking.”
Dennis Aogo: “I didn’t have to spend much time considering the offer from VfB and I am very happy that the transfer has worked out. I am very motivated and extremely eager to get on the ball and begin training with the team. During the course of my career I have played in Stuttgart on a number of occasions, so I know there is always an unbelievable atmosphere here. That too was an important factor in me making this move to VfB.”
