Marco Reus has signed a new contract with Borussia Dortmund until June 2023.
Reus, whose previous deal was due to expire at the end of next season, turned down “the best clubs in the world” to stay with Dortmund, according to the club’s chairman Hans-Joachim Watzke.
After signing the five-and-a-half year extension, Reus said: “I am happy and proud to be able to announce today that I’ll continue to wear the shirt of Borussia.
“Dortmund is my home, the BVB is my club. Since my childhood I dreamed in black and yellow to run and play for this club.
“This signature is a clear sign of the future. The fact that I can renew my commitment to the club today is also a thank you to our fantastic fans who have always helped me.”
Watzke added: “We are very pleased to be able to announce the extension of the contract with Marco Reus.
“Although the best clubs in the world have made offers to him again and again in the past, he has decided to extend his contract.
“I have a special personal relationship with him. The talks with Marco and his advisers were constructive and harmonious from the beginning.”
Reus has scored three goals in seven appearances since his return from a long-term cruciate ligament injury, and sporting director Michael Zorc said: “Marco makes any team better.
“He is the man for the important moments and especially the important goals. He is the cornerstone of our attack.
