Renato Steffen joins Wolfsburg from Swiss champions Basel

Wolfsburg have completed their second signing of the winter transfer window, bringing in attacking midfielder Renato Steffen from serial Swiss champions Basel.

Steffen, a five-time Switzerland international who helped the Basel reach the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 this season, has put pen to paper on a contract running until June 2021 at the Volkswagen Arena.

Steffen follows Josip Brekalo to Lower Saxony, after the Wolves reacted to the departure of Mario Gomez earlier in January by recalling the Croatian from his loan spell at Stuttgart.

A natural right-sided attacker but capable of filling in on the left flank, Steffen, 26, has scored three goals and picked up three assists in 17 Swiss Super League appearances this season.
