Having tied down both Nicolas Gonzales and Wataru Endo to new deals in recent days, VfB Stuttgart have now extended Borna Sosa’s contract by a further two years. The 22-year-old signed on until 30 June 2023 after joining from Dinamo Zagreb in 2018, having come through the youth ranks and made 41 first-team appearances for the Croatian outfit. The left-back has now committed his long-term future to the club in time for VfB’s home game against FC Bayern Munich on Saturday 28 November.
Sosa made 12 Bundesliga appearances during the 2018/19 season, before appearing in 12 Bundesliga 2 matches and one DFB Cup tie in 2019/20. The defender has made the matchday squad on six occasions this season, registering four starts and an appearance off the bench. He was an unused substitute in the 3-2 defeat to Freiburg on Matchday 1.
VfB sporting director Sven Mislintat:
“We’re really pleased that Borna Sosa has committed his long-term future to VfB. Borna’s technical attributes, pace and understanding of the game in both defence and attack are very important for us.”
“I’m very happy to have extended my contract until 2025. In nearly two and a half years since joining VfB, the club and the city have become very close to my heart. Things are also looking very positive in a sporting sense and I hope we can continue our development together in the future.”
