Wolfsburg have announced the signing of Paul-Georges Ntep from Rennes for an undisclosed fee.
Ntep, 24, has signed a four-and-a-half-year deal to become the Bundesliga club's fourth signing of the winter transfer window, following the arrivals of Yunus Malli, Victor Osimhen and Riechedly Bazoer.

"It's a new adventure," he told the official Rennes website. "It's a good time for the progress of my career.
"I am also sad because I didn't achieve what I wanted to with Rennes. I showed some good things but couldn't show that throughout because of things beyond my control, like an injury or fatigue.
"It's a club and a city that I will miss. I hope they reach the place they deserve. "Wolfsburg have great ambitions, with quality facilities and players. Even though their situation is a bit difficult right now, they aspire to something better,’’ Ntep added.
Head coach Valerien Ismael believes Ntep, who had been linked with Swansea City, will bring some new dynamism to their attack and fill Julian Draxler’s void at Wolfsburg.
"With Paul-Georges, we have distinctly improved the quality we possess on the wing," Ismael said.
"He is extremely pacey, technically gifted and, for such a young player, he is very experienced.
"His signing makes us more flexible tactically and even more difficult to reckon with going forward."
Capped twice at senior level by France, the Cameroon-born forward could make his debut in the league clash with Hamburg at the Volkswagen Arena on January 21.
