Bender signs new Dortmund deal

BY foxsports • December 13, 2010

Bender's current deal was not due to expire until the summer of 2013 but his form this season has attracted interest from elsewhere, prompting Dortmund to act.

The 21-year-old joined Jurgen Klopp's side from 1860 Munich in the summer of 2009 and has become an integral part of a Dortmund side which has established an 11-point lead at the top of the table following a blistering start.

He said: "I did the right thing when I joined Dortmund.

"And I want to be around when Dortmund continues to build in the future."

Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc said: "Sven is an important player in our future planning."
