Gentner could stay at Stuttgart

The 26-year-old, who scored five goals in 28 league games last

season, is out of contract at the Bundesliga club next summer.

Schneider says Stuttgart could offer him a fresh deal but only when

the time is right. He told kicker-Sportmagazin: “Christian Gentner

is under contract with our club. “We are feeling fine with him

being part of our club and he likes being part of our club, too.

Talks over a new deal could start at an appropriate time.” Gentner,

who re-joined the club from Wolfsburg in 2010 after leaving three

years earlier, added: “I am actually fully focused on pre-season. I

like to grab a first-team role. “I am under contract at VfB

Stuttgart and I like it. From my point of view there is no need to

hurry into a new deal.”
