Borussia Dortmund have been given a huge boost with the news that manager Jurgen Klopp has committed his long-term future to the club - by signing a new contract that runs through until 2018, according to BBC Sport.
Klopp, who has been linked with Arsenal as well as the German national team in the not too distant future, has now confirmed that he will be staying with last year's Bundesliga and Champions League runners-up with this new deal.
At the announcement of the new contract, the 46-year-old said: "We feel a lot of extraordinary trust and confidence in this club. It's [the contract is] a clear sign."
Klopp took over at Borussia Dortmund after seven years managing FSV Mainz 05, the only cub he played for in his career.
He has taken the club on a steady upward trajectory since then, finishing sixth and fifth before winning the Bundesliga title twice in successive years.
His success and personality have helped him become one of the most well-respected and liked coaches in European football.
The club currently stand second in the Bundesliga this year, one point behind Bayern Munich.
