As VfL Wolfsburg continue to build towards the new season, Zsanett Jakabfi has committed her future to the club.

The attacking all-rounder, who has been used in various different positions by the Wolves recently, has signed on to 2018.

An important piece of the puzzle

Jakabfi joined Wolfsburg back in 2009 and has made nearly 100 appearances for the side, going on to win many trophies and scoring 29 times in the process.

The Hungarian international was part of the treble-winning team in 2013, before Wolfsburg claimed the Champions League and Frauen-Bundesliga titles again the next season.

There was more success last term, as they won the DFB-Pokal in style against Turbine Potsdam at the RheinEnergieStadion.

Jakabfi and Kellermann have their say

The 26-year-old arrived from Hungarian outfit, MTK Hungaria in 2009 and was delighted to extend her stay in Germany's top division.

Head coach Ralf Kellermann had his say on the news: "Zsanett has been with us for a very long time."

He added, "I am particularly pleased that she has made it past her many injuries to continue to fight with us."

Jakabfi was happy to get the deal done, "We continue to have common goals and I am delighted that the coaching staff can count on me."

Wolfsburg keep their side together

Jakabfi is the latest player to commit to a new deal, with Kellermann keen to keep a successful side in tact.

The head coach himself extended until 2019, with Almuth Schult also confirming her deal had been extended to the same date.

Promising youngsters Joelle Wedemeyer and Merle Frohms also announced that they would be staying in Lower Saxony, signing on to 2019 and 2017 respectively.

Stephanie Bunte and Jana Burmeister have committed themselves to a further year at the Volkswagen Arena.
