RELIABLE, EXPERIENCED STOPPER...
Stefan joined the Club on a free transfer in July 2022 after his contract at Arminia Bielefeld expired.
The experienced German bolsters City’s goalkeeping options and will wear the number 18 shirt.
He started all but one of Arminia Bielefeld’s Bundesliga matches last term.
In total, he made 220 appearances across two different spells at a team he joined as a youngster in 2007. He made his first-team debut four years later, helping them win promotion to 2. Bundesliga in 2013.
He joined TSV 1860 Munich in 2014, making 64 appearances in three years there, before re-signing for Arminia Bielefeld in 2017 and eventually becoming vice captain.
Though he has the formidable talent of Ederson ahead of him, he has played regularly in cup competitions and made several impressive displays.
Stefan made his Premier League debut in May 2023, keeping a clean sheet in our 3-0 win over West Ham, helping continue City’s positive run of form to help us secure our third consecutive Premier League title and his first in his debut season with the club.
