Report: Loew to extend as Germany coach

The German football federation has called a news conference later Tuesday amid reports that national coach Joachim Loew has agreed to extend his contract by two years.

The Sueddeutsche Zeitung newspaper reported Loew will stay through the 2012 European Championship in Poland and Ukraine.

Loew led Germany's young team to a third-place finish at the World Cup in South Africa this month.

He has been out of contract since the end of the tournament. Earlier talks on an extension stalled over several issues, including remuneration.
