Postby FCBayernNews » Fri Mar 09, 2018 11:10 am

Joshua Kimmich (23) has agreed a three-year contract extension with FC Bayern München keeping him at the club until 30 June 2023. The Germany international’s curtrent deal was originally set to expire on 30 June 2020.

“Over the last two and a half years, Joshua has developed into a mainstay of our team,” commented FC Bayern München AG chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. “That’s why we’re extremely pleased we’ve secured his services for the long term. Thanks to his extremely positive progress in the right-back position, FC Bayern has achieved a seamless transition to the future.”

FC Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidžić also expressed delight at the new deal for the man capped 25 times by Germany, who “is still only young but accepts responsibility and leads the way on and off the pitch. “Joshua is an important component of the FC Bayern of the future, in which we hope to celebrate plenty of success over the next few years.”

“I'm very happy I've extended my contract so early. It shows the club and the officials have a lot of trust in me and see me as an important factor for FC Bayern's long-term sporting success. It makes me proud,” said Kimmich after inking the contract. “I'm grateful that I've always been able to develop at the highest possible level, and that it'll go on - and that I have the best conditions to take on an important role, in the national team too. My goals and the club's goals for the coming years are very ambitious, and I want to play my part and do everything to achieve them with the team.”

Joshua Kimmich joined FC Bayern from Leipzig at the beginning of the 2015/16 season. He has made 109 competitive appearances for the German record champions so far, scoring 13 goals. He became a Germany international in that time. He was in the Germany squad for the EURO 2016 in France and won the FIFA Confederations Cup in Russia last year.
