Vogt extends until 2025

TSG Hoffenheim have extended their cooperation with an important key player, whose contract was initially set to run out in summer 2022. Kevin Vogt, 30, has committed himself to the Bundesliga club for three more years, penning a deal that will keep him in the Kraichgau until 30 June 2025.

"Kevin is an extremely reliable cornerstone of our team, who is an important figure on and off the pitch due to his footballing abilities and vast experience," said Alexander Rosen in praise of the defender. "TSG Hoffenheim's successful development in the recent past, which has led to three involvements in European competitions, is also in large part down to him. During this period, there was also a very demanding phase for Kevin which he came through professionally and which certainly shaped him as a player and as a person," added the sporting director. In the second half of the 2019/20 season, Vogt went on loan to former league rivals Werder Bremen for six months, having previously resigned as captain following disagreements with former TSG boss Alfred Schreuder. "The recent talks with regard to his contract extension were characterised by great mutual respect, foresight and an ability to assess the current situation. Thanks to his clear commitment, Kevin has signalled his identification with TSG, our approach and, last but not least, our fans," Rosen said.

“Together, we have written the most successful chapter in the club’s history here in Hoffenheim in the past few years and I definitely would like to take on the responsibility of continuing this exciting story.” said Vogt, who, in addition to his speed, boasts one of the best passing rates in the Bundesliga every season. As a result, Vogt has established himself as one of the league's best defenders in recent years, with his accurate and versatile build-up play making him rather unpredictable for opponents when his team are in possession. 

Vogt moved to Hoffenheim in the summer of 2016 after spells playing for VfL Bochum, FC Augsburg and 1. FC Cologne. He has a total of 253 Bundesliga appearances (three goals), 21 DFB-Pokal appearances, six Champions League appearances and 11 Europa League matches to his name. He has played 169 competitive matches for TSG.
