Marco Reus ends speculation over Dortmund future with lengthy new contract

Arsenal and Manchester United were dealt a big blow in their pursuit of Marco Reus on Friday after the Borussia Dortmund attacker committed his long-term future to the German outfit. "I am happy and proud to be able to announce today that I will continue to wear it".

"We are very happy that Marco - although the best clubs in the world have repeatedly offered him in the past - has chose to extend his contract prematurely and for a very long time", Zorc said.

"Since childhood I have dreamed of running around in black and yellow and playing for this club".

Reus said: "Since 2012 I wear the jersey of Borussia". Since then he has had a hand in over 100 Bundesliga goals for the club, scoring 92 times in all competitions and putting Borussia 1-0 ahead on an incredible 39 occasions.

Reus said the decision to extend his contract was a "thank you" to the club's "fantastic fans".

Since his return four weeks ago, Reus scored three goals and set up two more.

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. "We are very happy that Marco renewed for a long time here, even though the best clubs in the world kept making him offers in the past".

"I have a special personal relationship with him".
