VfB sign Erik Thommy

Erik Thommy makes an immediate move from FC Augsburg to VfB Stuttgart and has signed on with the Cannstatt Boys until June 30th, 2020. The new man will wear the number 17 jersey with the infamous red hoop. This season, the 23-year-old winger made six Bundesliga appearances for Augsburg, with whom he was previously active in the club’s U17, U19 and reserve teams. Last season, the left-footer was on loan at SSV Jahn Regensburg. 

Michael Reschke: "Erik Thommy has a great deal of potential to become a good Bundesliga player. Following his footballing education in Augsburg, he gathered some important experience in Kaiserslautern and Regensburg. This season he confirmed the quality he possesses in the Bundesliga. He is a technically gifted attacking player, who we’ve had an eye on for some time. I firmly believe he will quickly take the next step in his development with us and that he can be a very sensible boost to our squad."

Erik Thommy: "I had a wonderful time in Augsburg and I would like to express my gratitude to all those responsible for aiding my development from a youth team player through to the professional team over the years. The move to VfB Stuttgart is a step into new surroundings form e and a massive challenge, which I am really looking forward to. Now I want to quickly become a part of the group and help VfB achieve their goals."
