Borussia Monchengladbach captain Lars Stindl has signed a new contract that will keep him at the Bundesliga outfit until June 2021.
The forward joined BMG from Hannover in 2015 and has since developed into a key figure at Borussia Park, scoring 32 goals in 82 appearances in all competitions.
His previous deal was due to expire in 2020, but he has now been rewarded for his fine performances with a one-year extension.
"Lars is an incredibly important player for us as club captain, our most prolific goalscorer and a leading figure in the dressing room," Gladbach sporting director Max Eberl commented on the former Karlsruher man's new contract.
"He is central to our plans for the next few years which is why we are absolutely delighted to be extending his time at the club."
