Wolfsburg have announced the signing of Paul-Georges Ntep from Rennes for an undisclosed fee.

The 24-year-old France international has signed a four-and-a-half-year deal to become the Bundesliga club's fourth signing of the transfer window, following the arrivals of Yunus Malli, Victor Osimhen and Riechedly Bazoer.


"Wolfsburg have secured the services of Paul-Georges Ntep from French first division side Stade Rennes," the club confirmed via an official statement.

"The fee involved in the transfer of the attacker, who will begin training with the Green-Whites in La Manga on Monday, remains undisclosed. The 24-year-old will wear the number nine jersey."

Head coach Valerien Ismael believes Ntep, who had been linked with Premier League side Swansea City, will bring some new dynamism to their attack in the wake of Julian Draxler's move to Paris Saint-Germain.

"With Paul-Georges, we have distinctly improved the quality we possess on the wing," Ismael said. "He is extremely pacy, technically gifted and, for such a young player, he is very experienced.

"His signing makes us more flexible tactically and even more difficult to reckon with going forward."
