Mönchengladbach - Borussia Mönchengladbach have been boosted by the news that defender Oscar Wendt has extended his contract with the club.

The 28-year-old full-back, who scored Gladbach’s second goal in their 4-1 win over Eintracht Frankfurt on Sunday evening, will now remain with the Foals until 2016. His current deal was due to expire in the summer.

Building for the future


Gladbach sporting director Max Eberl was delighted at the news. “Oscar has been with us for three years. We’re preparing for the future with him in our plans and are pleased he’s decided to extend his stay with us for a further two years.”

Wendt has found the net on two occasions so far this season: His first strike of the campaign opened the scoring in the Foals’ 4-1 victory over Eintracht Braunschweig on Matchday 6, while his goal in the 18th minute of Sunday's match with Frankfurt set his team on the way to another comprehensive win. The Swedish international was signed from Danish outfit FC Kobenhavn in 2011.
