"I feel really good with VfL, and want to achieve a lot of things with Wolfsburg in the coming seasons," Casteels said.

"After the summer break, however, for us, the first thing to do is to reorient ourselves as a team and to stabilise our sporting ambitions. Such a season as the one just gone can no longer exist. We are all guilty."

Casteels has made 41 appearances since joining the Wolves during the two-and-a-half seasons with his club.
