VfL Wolfsburg's 20-year-old midfielder, Paul Seguin, has today put pen to paper in a new deal that will keep him at the club. The youngster has signed a two-year extension, that will keep him in Lower Saxony until 2018 at the earliest.

Homegrown talent

Seguin has been with the Volkswagen Arena side since the age of 12, and the player who celebrates his 21st birthday next week finally made his debut first team performance during the 2014/15 season in a 2-0 DFB Pokal victory at RB Leipzig. Die Wölfe subsequently went on to win that competition.

After featuring heavily with the under 19 side, Seguin has become an integral part of Valerien Ismäel's impervious VfL Wolfsburg II team competing in the Regionalliga Nord over the course of the past two seasons. Yet hampered by injuries, including requiring ankle surgery, the midfielder has been unable to kick on from the boost that the Leipzig debut gave him. However the Magdeburg born man does appear to be part of die Wölfe's head-coach Dieter Hecking's plans and has been on the bench, on a number of recent occasions.

Delighted to extend

"VfL is a super club" said Seguin, clearly ecstatic with the opportunity afforded to him once more; "I've got a lot to be grateful for." 

At a club the size of VfL Wolfsburg, plenty of opportunities are of offer for youth players but hard work is also required; the young midfielder was keen to stress the importance of this virtue. Seguin added: "The sporting prospects here are very good and I will be doing everything in my power to maintain my chance of making a breakthrough in the Bundesliga.

"The injuries meant that the past few months weren't so easy for me, but I want to prove that I can do it," commented Seguin, displaying a resolute tone in the face of adversity that the last few months have had in store for him.
