’s Geoffroy Serey Dié has left relegated VfB Stuttgart to rejoin his former club .

The Ivorian returns to the club that he left just eighteen months ago, following Stuttgart’s relegation to the 2. Bundesliga at the end of last season.

He has signed a two-year contract with the Swiss champions, but he may miss the start of the season as he recovers from an injury picked up at the back end of the last campaign.

The Ivorian veteran midfielder was a regular starter for Stuttgart following his arrival in January 2015, playing 36 times in the Bundesliga, scoring just one goal.

On his return to Basel, he stated that he had unfinished business with the club, saying: “I’m pleased to return to FC Basel. I started a task here in 2013, that now I would like to finish.”

He will join Egyptian right back Omar Gaber at the Swiss club.
