The 17-year-old has extended his contract for the long term. Laurin Ulrich joined VfB’s youth training center as an eleven-year-old in the summer of 2016. Since then, he has been through all the youth teams, became a youth national player (15 games for the German U17 national team) and last season reached the final of the German championship with the U17 team. Now the 17-year-old has extended his contract with VfB for the long term. The midfielder is currently completing pre-season training with the squad of professional players and will travel to the training camp on Saturday.
