New VfL Wolfsburg signing Jeffrey Bruma reveals that he has always wanted to return to the Bundesliga and is delighted by the chance he has been given at Wolfsburg.
The Netherlands international signed a five-year contract with the German side on Monday morning from Eredivisie champions PSV Eindhoven to mark his return to the German topflight.
The former Chelsea academy graduate made 40 league appearances for Hamburg during a two-year loan spell.
“Since my time at Hamburg, it was clear to me that I would like to play in the Bundesliga again, because it’s one of Europe’s top leagues,” he told the club’s official website.
“I’m looking forward to having that opportunity with Wolfsburg. In three years at PSV, I’ve gained a lot of experience and improved a lot. It’s now time for the next step.”
Wolfsburg coach Dieter Hecking has hailed the arrival of the 19 times capped Dutch international whom he believes has massive potential to still grow at the Volkswagen Arena.
“We’re getting a central-defender of international class, as we were able to see in our Champions League games against PSV last season,” Hecking said.
“In spite of that, we believe Jeffrey can continue his development with us.”
