• Bruma moves to Wolfsburg from PSV Eindhoven.
  • The centre-back puts pen to paper on a five-year deal.
  • A 19-time Netherlands international.

VfL Wolfsburg have stiffened their back line for the coming season with the signing of Netherlands international defender Jeffrey Bruma.

The 24-year-old centre-back has signed a five-year deal through to 2021 at the Volkswagen Arena, and is enthusiastic about having a second taste of the Bundesliga after a previous spell at Hamburger SV.

"Since my time at Hamburg, it was clear to me that I would like to play in the Bundesliga again, because it's one of Europe’s top leagues," said Bruma, who made 40 top-flight appearances for HSV between July 2011 and June 2013 after joining on loan from Chelsea FC.

"I'm looking forward to having that opportunity with Wolfsburg. In three years at PSV, I've gained a lot of experience and improved a lot. It's now time for the next step."

'International class'

Bruma, who has 19 international caps and a single goal for De Oranje, will fill the void left by Naldo's departure for FC Schalke 04.

"We're getting a central-defender of international class, as we were able to see in our Champions League games against PSV last season," Wolves coach Dieter Hecking said. "In spite of that, we believe Jeffrey can continue his development with us."
