Jeffrey Bruma joins Wolfsburg from PSV Eindhoven

  
Wolfsburg have announced the signing of Jeffrey Bruma from PSV Eindhoven for an undisclosed fee.
Netherlands centre-back Bruma, 24, has signed a five-year contract with the Bundesliga club.
Bruma, who joined PSV from Chelsea in 2013 after loan spells with Leicester City and Hamburg, has won Eredivisie titles in the last two seasons.
Wolfsburg sporting director Klaus Allofs told the club's official website: "We are delighted that Jeffrey opted for VfL Wolfsburg.
"He will join us with the confidence of just winning a league title, moreover he knows Bundesliga from his time at Hamburger SV and boasts international experience. We are convinced that he can quickly become an important cornerstone for our squad." 
Wolfsburg coach Dieter Hecking said: "We get a centre-back of international class. We were able to convince ourselves of it in our Champions League meetings with PSV Eindhoven last season.
"In spite of that we believe that Jeffrey will be able to push forward his development at Wolfsburg. We believe he has not peaked yet." 
Bruma said he had been eager to return to Germany after his time on loan at Hamburg.
"The league is one of the European top leagues," he added. "I am delighted I get the chance to do so at Wolfsburg in the future. I was able to gather a lot of experience and further myself in my three years at Eindhoven.
"Now it's time to make the next step. Klaus Allofs and Dieter Hecking have shown me that Wolfsburg's the right place for it."
Wolfsburg are currently in a rebuilding phase after a disappointing 2015-16 campaign that saw them finish eighth in the Bundesliga.
