Borussia Dortmund midfielder Sven Bender has signed a contract extension with the club.
Bender arrived at the Signal Iduna Park in 2009, with his contract due to expire at the end of next season.
But the Germany international has signed a four-year extension with the bumblebees.
“I want to thank Hans-Joachim Watzke, Michael Zorc and Thomas Tuchel for the trust they have placed in me,” Bender told the club’s official website.
“We have brought some very good discussions to a conclusion. I am extremely happy to be wearing the black and yellow jersey into the future.
“I would be glad if some of my other teammates would therefore follow in the coming weeks.”
