VfL Wolfsburg signed Casteels from TSG 1899 Hoffenheim in January 2015, he spent the first six months of his three-and-a-half-year deal on loan at Werder Bremen. In the 2015 DFL Supercup, he played for Wolfsburg and saved a penalty shootout from Xabi Alonso as his club won after a 1–1 tie.

When Diego Benaglio left Wolfsburg in June 2017, Casteels was given the number one shirt and a new three-year deal. During the 2017-18 Bundesliga season, he played in all 34 of the club’s games.

Casteels got called up to the senior Belgian team for the first time in 2013. After failing to recuperate from an injury, he was replaced by Silvio Proto and later Sammy Bossut in Belgium’s 2014 FIFA World Cup team.

Casteels competed with Matz Sels for the final spot behind Thibaut Courtois and Simon Mignolet at the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Manager Roberto Martnez often used four goalkeepers in his international lineups. He was eventually selected for the final 23-man Russia squad.
