Following confidential talks, Borussia Dortmund and goalkeeper Roman Bürki have agreed to a premature contract extension. Bürki's contract, which was set to expire in 2021, will now run for an additional two years until 30 June 2023.
"We're delighted that in Roman Bürki, we will continue to have one of the most consistent goalkeepers in the Bundesliga between the sticks. This means we have secured an excellent player for an important position in the long term. It speaks volumes for Roman that he has already kept 12 clean sheets this season," declared sporting director Michael Zorc.
Swiss shot-stopper Roman Bürki came to Dortmund from fellow Bundesliga outfit SC Freiburg in the summer of 2015. He has since made 206 competitive appearances and kept 75 clean sheets for BVB. "I'm very happy at Borussia Dortmund and I feel the trust placed in me by the club management, the coach and my fellow players," the 29-year-old said.
