The sparrows were already whistling it from the rooftops, and now the transfer has been officially confirmed: VfB Stuttgart have signed the clubless Dan-Axel Zagadou, who was last under contract with BVB.

As the Swabians announced on Monday evening, the central defender will sign a contract until 2026. Zagadou will wear number 23 at VfB. Sports director Sven Mislintat commented on the transfer as follows:

"Daxo has all the qualities that a top central defender needs. He is athletically strong, has a good passing game and has gained valuable experience at national and international level in recent years. He knows the Bundesliga and will therefore need little time to integrate with us."

"With his signing, we were able to fill the vacant squad place in the defensive area with an excellent player. We are very pleased that Daxo has chosen us and warmly welcome him to VfB," continued Mislintat.

Zagadou himself announced: "I'm very happy to be here. Many thanks to those responsible at VfB for the trust they place in me. I'm really looking forward to being on the pitch with my new team-mates soon."

The 23-year-old was under contract with Borussia Dortmund for five years, but was not given a new contract in the summer due to his injury susceptibility. During the transfer period, TSG Hoffenheim and Premier League club West Ham United, among others, are said to have dealt with the left foot.
