VfL Bochum 1848 has been able to tie down another key player: Gerrit Holtmann has signed a contract with the club until June 30, 2025. The 27-year-old winger has been playing for VfL since 2020 and has 23 goals in 66 competitive matches.

"Things have only gone uphill for Gerrit Holtmann since he first signed with VfL," said Sebastian Schindzielorz, Director of Sport at VfL Bochum 1848. "He’s been able to put in consistent performances, set a speed record in the top two German leagues in the 2020/21 season and played his most successful Bundesliga season last season. With his dynamism, he is an uncomfortable opponent for any defender. We’re delighted that he has decided to spend more years with VfL."

Gerrit Holtmann is "very happy that it worked out with the contract extension. I feel comfortable at VfL, the whole environment fits. Now it's time for us to work on the next miracle and keep us up in the division. I want to make my contribution to that."
