He will compete in the Champions League with the German team, four-time winners of the event and one of the best on the continent.

Vincent Gérard wishes in a press release "to thank the club of Saint-Raphaël for having done everything possible to find a positive outcome to my request".

The Var club has indeed released him from his contract which ran until 2025.

The doorman of the Blues has signed up for a year plus another option and will replace Danish international Niklas Landin on the shores of the Baltic Sea, back home in Aalborg at the end of the season.

“Kiel was, from a very young age, one of the clubs of my dreams.

It was even for him that I learned German at school.

It's a dream come true, I'm very proud and happy,” Gerard told the Kiel “Zèbres” website.

“I know there will be a lot of waiting, but that's why I signed in Kiel.

I like to play matches at the highest level every three days and have the pressure of having to win matches,” he added.
