Ricky van Wolfswinkel will still stay with FC Basel. The 31-year-old Dutchman announced at the end of August to leave the Swiss club, but signed a new contract on Monday until mid-2022.

Van Wolfswinkel’s commitment to Basel expired this summer and the two parties initially failed to reach an agreement in the negotiations on a new contract. The striker wrote on Instagram that the cup final on August 30 would be his last match, but nothing could be further from the truth.

On the initiative of Van Wolfswinkel, the talks were recently restarted and during the second attempt, the born Woudenberger and Basel did reach an agreement. He even signs a two-year contract with the Swiss top club, where he has been playing since the summer of 2017.

“I feel closely connected with the club, the management, the squad, the fans and the entire region”, says Van Wolfswinkel on the site from FC Basel. “Basel has given me a lot of support during a difficult time, especially in the past year and I am very grateful to the club for that. I am all the more happy that I can wear this shirt for two more years.”

Van Wolfswinkel played 86 official matches for Basel in the past three seasons and scored 35 goals. The two-time Oranje-international missed a large part of the past season due to a brain disorder.

Earlier in his career, Van Wolfswinkel wore the shirt of Vitesse (two periods), FC Utrecht, Sporting CP, Norwich City, Saint-Étienne and Real Betis. He made his debut in the Dutch national team in August 2010, but then played only one international match (June 2013).
