Sky Germany is currently reporting that SC Freiburg midfielder and heavily capped Germany U21 international Yannik Keitel has sewn up an agreement to join VfB Stuttgart on a free transfer this coming summer.
The Breisgauer appeared to show little interest in extending Keitel's expiring contract. The youngster has been free to negotiate with other clubs since the current transfer window opened. A winter departure for Keitel seems unlikely, but not necessarily out of the question if Freiburg can procure reinforcements and Stuttgart may be willing to pay a fee. Keitel maintains an estimated market worth of €4 million.
