Franck Ribery has signed a new five-year contract with Bayern Munich.

The France international has ended speculation about his future at the Allianz Arena by penning a new deal which commits him to the Bundesliga champions until June 30, 2015.

"We are very pleased that one of the best players in the world has agreed to a contract extension. This is also a sign of the great objectives of FC Bayern in the coming years," said Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

The news will come as a boost to fans of the Bavarian side who saw their team suffer a 2-0 defeat against Inter Milan in the final of the Champions League on Saturday night.

Ribery missed the game at the Bernabeu after his sending-off in the semi-final first leg against Lyon, while the loss denied Louis van Gaal's side a famous treble of European Cup, Bundesliga and German Cup.

The 27-year-old put pen to paper on the new deal prior to Saturday night's defeat.
