VfB Stuttgart sign Jeff Chabot!

In a move that will bolster the back line, Jeff Chabot has joined VfB Stuttgart from 1.FC Köln, with the 26-year-old central defender signing a contract through to June 30, 2028. Chabot played 34 of 36 matches for 1.FC Köln across all competitions last season.

Julian Jeffrey Gaston Chabot, to use his full name, has played at the highest level in three different countries to date. As well 57 appearances in the Bundesliga for Köln, who he joined in 2022, he has also played 44 times in the Italian Serie A (for Sampdoria and Spezia Calcio) and 48 in the Dutch Eredivisie (for FC Groningen and Sparta Rotterdam).

“We are delighted that Jeff Chabot has chosen to join us,” said VfB sporting director Fabian Wohlgemuth. “He’s solid with real individual strengths, and he’s set to play a key role in our back line. He’s already shown how good he is against the likes of Serhou Guirassy, keeping him under wraps when the two went one-on-one. The experience, mindset and quality that he brings mean that we are already better equipped to compete on three fronts next season.”

“I’m looking forward to taking on a new challenge at VfB Stuttgart and having the chance to play at the highest level in Europe, in the Champions League,” said Chabot. “That’s something that I’ve always hoped for, and I’m delighted that this dream is coming true for me at a club with great history. I can’t wait for everything to take shape, the challenge that awaits, meeting my new teammates and getting to know the fans.”
