The right-back spent seven years playing for Augsburg where he was made captain. He made a total of 224 appearances for Augsburg scoring 20 goals.

Verhaegh said, ”After seven amazing years it will be strange to think that I will never wear the shirt of Augsburg again.

”I have deliberately chosen for this step in my career because I want a new challenge.”

At VfL Wolfsburg, Verhaegh will play alongside Dutch compatriots Jeffrey Bruma and Riechedly Bazoer and also under Dutch manager Andries Jonker.

Verhaegh left the Netherlands for Gemany in 2010. He previously played for Vitesse Arnhem and Den Bosch. He has been capped three times by the Dutch national team .
