✍️ Yanic Wildschut extends City contract

Congratulations, Yanic!

17 January 2024

We are delighted to announce that winger Yanic Wildschut has extended his stay with the Grecians.

The Suriname international has signed a deal until the end of the 2023/24 season.

Yanic joined City back in September 2023 on a short term deal and has gone on to make 21 appearances in red and white, scoring a crucial equaliser away at Stevenage in December.

Speaking about Yanic extending his deal, manager Gary Caldwell said: "I'm really happy Yanic has signed. In recent games over Christmas, especially Stevenage when he came off the bench to score he's been a constant threat. He is a brilliant ball carrier to run us up the pitch, so we are delighted to keep him for the rest of the season and potentially longer.

"He knows this level and has played in other countries and leagues but he's also very well liked. He gets on well with the boys in the squad and they respect him so he has a big influence on group in general.

"Yanic is someone I've known for a long time and he provides so much for the team when he is on it. There were other clubs interested in him because he's done so well for us, but I think he's enjoyed his time here and it was a case of telling him what I needed from him and what the club could do and financially the club has backed it again which is great."
