VfL Wolfsburg and TSG Hoffenheim are chasing third division talent
Kevin Wiethaup is a great talent of his generation. Wiethaup gets little match practice at VfL Osnabrück. Now VfL Wolfsburg and TSG Hoffenheim should show interest.
Kevin Wiethaup is considered a great talent of his generation. The 17-year-old has hardly had any playing time at VfL Osnabrück. Nevertheless, two Bundesliga clubs are interested in Wiethaup – VfL Wolfsburg and TSG Hoffenheim are said to want to sign him in winter.
Born in 2005, Kevin Wiethaup stands out as a great German talent. The 17-year-old is currently under contract with third division club VfL Osnabrück. Wiethaup has been playing for the youth department of VfL since summer 2020. In the summer, the right-footed player received a sponsorship contract. After a certain number of third division appearances, it becomes a professional contract. It is currently unlikely that this will happen.
Wiethaup is still without a competitive game for the professional team. The Bocholter native collects game practice in the U19. In the junior Bundesliga North/Northeast he has twelve appearances in which he scored one goal and two assists. In the preparation he already played with the pros in the focus. The winger particularly impressed at the Volkswagen Cup in Osnabrück. The cheeky style of play of the 17-year-old has aroused the interest of two Bundesliga clubs.
Low fee due to funding contract
the picture reports that VfL Wolfsburg and TSG Hoffenheim are interested. Both are said to want to sign the dribbling talent in the winter transfer window. Due to the funding contract, the transfer fee would amount to a comparatively low 400,000 euros. In the Bundesliga, Wiethaup would first appear for the A youth and later be introduced to the professionals. A model that is well known.
In the past, VfL Wolfsburg often attracted young talent from other clubs by offering a lot of money and the possibility of training at professional level. In the summer, managing director Jörg Schmadtke (58) and sports director Marcel Schäfer (38) brought talent Dzenan Pejcinovic from Augsburg to Wolfsburg. This tactic could soon work again when it comes to a change from Kevin Wiethaup.
