Twenty-one-old center back Maxence Lacroix's current contract with VfL Wolfsburg didn't expire until 2024. Despite this the Autostädter confirmed on Thursday evening that they had restructured and extended the defender's contract by another year.

It could be the case that the club addressed some of the youngster's disaffection at his failed move to Leipzig this summer by increasing his salary or benefits. Such is usually the case when contracts are extended prematurely.

"Maxence has made great strides in this past year," sporting director Marcel Schäfer said in a statement, "We're thus pleased that we'll continue to pursue our goals together."

"I'm very pleased that we've extended the contract," Lacroix said in his own statement, "I feel completely at home in Wolfsburg and still have a lot of plans with the VfL. It's fun to play in this team and I'm looking forward to us working and finding success together."
