Bayern extends contract of midfielder Kroos

Bayern Munich has extended the contract of midfielder Toni Kroos

until 2015.

The 21-year-old Germany international has agreed a three-year

extension to his contract, that was originally set to expire in

2012.

Bayern says the extension is ”another step” in building for

the future.

Bayern’s coach Louis van Gaal is leaving at the end of the

season and will be replaced by Jupp Heynckes. Heynckes coached

Kroos when he was on loan to Bayer Leverkusen during 2009 and

2010.
