Knoche will stay at least until summer

On Saturday, Robin Knoche was once again exactly where he would like to be all the time: in the middle of things instead of just being there – on the playing field. At the match between his VfL Wolfsburg and Hertha BSC (2:3), the 24-year-old finally played for the Wolves again. But: How does it continue with him?

His contract ends next summer. Clear is according to our information: There will be no winter change Knoches. Either he extends his expiring contract after the turn of the year or he leaves the VfL in the summer after then twelve years. The 24-year-old said recently that he had not yet thought about his future. Nevertheless, it is heard from his environment that he would like to stay in Wolfsburg. However, only if his sporting situation improves permanently. A year ago Knoche already had the chance to change. Borussia Monchengladbach wanted to have it. But VfL manager Klaus Allofs refused.

Another central defender is likely to leave if there is a good offer: For Carlos Ascues there's probably no future at VfL.
