Done deal: Celtic old boy Jenz leaves Lorient for VfL Wolfsburg

Moritz Jenz's two-year association with French Ligue 1 club Lorient has come to an end, with the central defender completing a permanent transfer to German Bundesliga outfit VfL Wolfsburg. 


Jenz spent the first half of last season on loan at Scottish Premiership outfit Celtic, where he appeared in nineteen matches across all competitions and was on the scoresheet twice. 


The 24-year-old made six appearances for the Hoops in the UEFA Champions League, including against Real Madrid and RB Leipzig.


The Super Eagles-eligible player was at FC Schalke 04 for the second half of the 2022-2023 season and would have been signed on a full deal if they had avoided relegation. 


VfL Wolfsburg announced on Friday afternoon that Jenz has put pen to paper on a four-year contract that will keep him at Lower Saxony until 2027.


Commenting on his transfer to Wolfsburg, Jenz told the club's official website: "I’m really looking forward to this new challenge. VfL Wolfsburg are a very ambitious club who want to play in Europe.


"It’s the perfect environment for me to continue my development. I’m a player who brings heart and passion to the pitch and gives everything for his club and their colours."


The 1.9m defender turned out for several clubs in Berlin at the beginning of his career, before making the move to Fulham in England, from where he transferred to Swiss side FC Lausanne-Sport in 2020.


Jenz scored one goal in eighteen appearances for Lorient, whom he joined in 2021.
