Emre Can has agreed terms on a two-year contract extension at Borussia Dortmund, the experienced Germany international midfielder lengthening his stay at the Black-and-Yellows until June 30, 2026.
The 29-year-old - who has racked up 121 appearances across three seasons for BVB - played an important role in Die Schwarzgelben's title challenge last season, with Dortmund narrowly missing out on Bundesliga glory to Bayern Munich on the last day of the season.
Having previously lined out for Bayern, Bayer Leverkusen, Liverpool and Juventus, Can boasts immense experience in the game, something - along with his battling qualities - that will stand to Edin Terzic's side in the forthcoming season.
"I feel very comfortable here in Dortmund," the Frankfurt native explained in quotes appearing on BVB's official website. "In the last few months I've definitely arrived and shown what I expect from myself and what the fans here expect from me," he continued.
"It has to be my yardstick to play like we did in the second half of [last] season or even better. Dortmund and I go well together. That's why I want to stay here, work hard and help the team to achieve our goals."
BVB's sporting director Sebastian Kehl added: "Over the past season, Emre has developed into the leading player that we have always seen in him. We appreciate his greed, his physique and his absolute determination to want to win every game, not only at Borussia Dortmund but also in the national team."
