Borussia Dortmund's Marco Reus has signed a new contract with the club until June 2023. I am happy and proud I can announce I will keep wearing it.

He said: "Dortmund is my home, the BVB is my club". Since I was a child I dreamt of wearing black and yellow and to play for this club.

"The fact that the club have repeatedly helped me in less than flawless times has also had a positive effect on my decision", he said. "The club has supported me in tough times, so it was important for me to thank them", Reus continued.

Reus, whose existing deal was set to expire at the end of next season, told "Since 2012, I wear the jersey of Borussia". He has 92 goals in competitive matches with Dortmund.

Reus has only just returned to the fold after an eight-month lay-off with a knee injury, but he is determined to force his way into the Germany squad for the summer's World Cup. That trophy was the first of Reus' career at Dortmund. "He's the man for those important moments, especially with important goals". He is a cornerstone of our attack and furthermore a face of this club.

"We're really pleased Marco has made a decision to sign a long-term contract with the club despite numerous offers from around the world", said BVB CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke.

"I have a close personal relationship with him and the talks with him and his agent were in a constructive and harmonical atmosphere from the beginning".
