Key duo pledge immediate futures to FCB

Postby FCBayernNews » Thu Mar 19, 2009 12:45 pm

Bayern's squad for next season and beyond continued to take shape on Thursday with the news that both Mark van Bommel and Martin Demichelis have agreed new contracts with Germany's most successful club. "We've agreed a one-year contract extension with Mark," general manager Uli Hoeneß officially announced. The midfielder will sign his new deal in the course of the next few days.

Centre-back Demichelis has also pledged his immediate future to the club by agreeing a two-year contract extension until 30 June 2012. "I'm delighted we've reached agreement, and I'm looking forward to achieving a great deal with Bayern," the player said. Demichelis, who joined Bayern in 2003, has earned 18 full international caps for Argentina.

Club captain Van Bommel has put an end to weeks of speculation over his future, although the player always insisted he was merely taking the time necessary for an important decision. "We've reached agreement. I'm staying," the Netherlands international confirmed. Mark's current deal expires on 30 June this year.

Van Bommel arrived at the club from freshly-crowned Champions League winners Barcelona at the tail end of the August 2006 transfer window. He immediately became an influential figure on and off the field, slotting in near the top of the dressing room hierarchy. Last summer, coach Jürgen Klinsmann named him Oliver Kahn's successor as club captain. The midfielder has scored nine goals in 75 Bundesliga appearances for FCB to date.
