The Dutch midfielder signed a three-year contract that runs through 2024.
Roord joined Arsenal in 2019 following two seasons with Bayern Munich. The Dutch midfielder had seven goals in 19 matches for the Gunners in the 2020-21 campaign. She also had back-to-back hat tricks against Reading and West Ham in the first two WSL games of the season.
Currently playing in the top division of German soccer, the Bundesliga, Wolfsburg won back-to-back UEFA Women’s Champions League titles in 2013 and 2014. This year, they lost in the quarterfinal to Chelsea, who have since advanced to the final.
Notably, Wolfsburg’s new head coach Tommy Stroot was Roord’s coach at FC Twente back in her native Netherlands.
