Bundesliga side FC Augsburg have successfully extended the contract of the Switzerland international Ruben Vargas. The club announced the contract extension of the 22-year-old on Sunday, 25th July via their social media handle.
Vargas arrived to Augsburg at the end of his summer vacation after an excellent performance with the Swiss international side in the European Championship. The midfielder joined the team for his first training session before signing a new deal with the club.
Augsburg prematurely extended the contract of the youngster which was set to end in 2024. However, Vargas will now provide his services to the Bundesliga club until 2025.
Vargas was excited after signing the new deal with the club. He expressed his joy by thanking the team for showing trust in him and he looks forward to delivering and paying back the club for believing in him.
“I’m pleased that FCA offered me a premature extension of my contract. It shows how much the club believes that I can help the team in the coming years and that I can continue to develop here. I want to repay this faith through good performances,” said Ruben Vargas.
Ruben Vargas has developed brilliantly: FCA sporting director, Stefan Reuter
Ruben Vargas has been a member of FC Augsburg since signing from FC Luzern in 2019. Vargas recorded 63 Bundesliga games in his first two campaigns netting 12 goals and contributing five assists.
