Marco Reus has put pen to paper on a new lengthy deal with Borussia Dortmund, apparently ending the chance of him leaving the club this summer.

The German International has been linked with several high profile clubs, including Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Manchester United. However, according to BBC Sport, the Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke said that: "We never let ourselves be influenced by all the rumours.”

Dortmund extension

Even with Dortmund hovering around the relegation zone Reus has decided that his future belongs at the German club. Throughout his spell at BVB the 25-year-old has seen the likes of Robert Lewandowski and Mario Gotze leave the Signal Iduna Park.

The midfielder is showing commitment towards the club that enhanced him into a world-class player, and Dortmund will be hoping that the German can help steer them away from the relegation zone and progress further in the Champions League.

Speculation rife

Speculation surrounding the attacking midfielder's future has been prominent in the media throughout the past year, and with Dortmund having a terrible season many thought this would be the perfect time for Reus to jump ship.

Yet Reus said of his new deal: "I am very happy with my decision for Borussia Dortmund.

"Dortmund is my hometown and Borussia is simply my club.”

Alternative motives?

Some people would say that the German is only doing this to boost his wages up until the summer transfer window, when he could try and force a move to one of Europe’s elites.

I personally think he is doing the right thing by signing an extension on his contract, this will give the club and players a massive boost in the current season, as they know their star man is committed to the cause.

Dortmund currently sit third from bottom of the Bundesliga following a win over SC Freiburg last Saturday in which the German international opened the scoring.
