DR Congolese midfielder Chadrac Akolo is pleased to have joined German club VFB Stuttgart from Swiss outfit FC Sion.
The 22-year-old attacking midfielder has signed a four-year deal with the German Bundesliga club and he will wear the number 19 jersey.
Jan Schindelmeiser, the Stuttgart Sporting Director, praised Akolo when speaking to the club's official website.
"Chadrac Akolo has developed very well over the past two seasons and we have every fate in his ability to continue that development in the Bundesliga," Schindelmeiser said.
"Chadrac is happiest in a wide attacking position, he is a good assist provider and also has a good goal tally."
Akolo says he's looking forward to playing in one of the best leagues in world football and helping the club perform well during the upcoming 2017/18 season.
"I had a really nice and successful time in Switzerland, which I am very thankful for," Akolo said.
"Now I am looking forward to the challenge in the Bundesliga and at my new club VfB Stuttgart.
"I would like to get to know my new team mates at the up-coming training camp and, over the next few weeks and months, play my part in ensuring that we have a good season."
