Marco Reus ends speculation over Dortmund future with lengthy new contract

The Germany international has signed a five-and-a-half year deal with the club.

Marco Reus has signed a new five-and-a-half year contract to remain at Borussia Dortmund until the summer of 2023.

The 28-year-old joined BVB from Borussia Monchengladbach in 2012 in a move worth around £15million, but has been blighted by injuries throughout his six-season spell at Signal Iduna Park.

However, the eight-time Bundesliga champions have showed their loyalty to the Germany international, who has scored three goals and assisted two more in seven appearances since returning from his latest setback in February, sparking reported interest from top clubs around Europe.

Reus, whose existing deal was set to expire at the end of next season, told BVB.de: “Since 2012, I wear the jersey of Borussia. I am happy and proud to announce today that I will continue to wear it.

“Dortmund is my home, BVB is my club. Since childhood I have dreamt of running around in black and yellow and playing for this club.

“The fact that I can renew my commitment to the club today is also a thank you to our fantastic fans, who have always supported me.”
