Kingsley Coman has joined Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka by signing a contract extension with Bayern Munich to take the France international's deal through to 2027.

Coman, 25, has put pen to paper on a four-year extension to the contract that was due to expire in June 2023. Bayern teammates Kimmich and Goretzka have both already inked similar new deals this season.

"I'm very happy because FC Bayern are one of the best clubs in the world and I know we still have a lot of opportunities and big goals here," said Coman, who has claimed six Bundesliga winner's medals, three DFB Cups and a UEFA Champions League.

"I've been at the club since 2015 — it feels like a big family. Everything is perfect here. My best years as a footballer are still ahead of me, and I'm glad I'll be spending them at FC Bayern. My biggest goal is to win the Champions League again — and this time, please, together with our fans."

Coman originally joined Bayern in 2015 on a two-year loan deal from Juventus before the record German champions made the move permanent in 2017. If he sees his contract through, he will match the 12 years that his iconic compatriot, Franck Ribery, spent at Bayern between 2007 and 2019.

The pacy winger, who scored the only goal in the 2019/20 Champions League final victory against Paris Saint-Germain — the club from whose youth academy he emerged — has scored 28 goals and provided 32 assists in 147 Bundesliga appearances to date for Bayern.

"Players with Kingsley Coman's ability are wanted by clubs all around the world. This contract extension is another example of how attractive our club is at the highest level internationally," said Bayern CEO Oliver Kahn on the club's official website.

"Kingsley is fully committed to FC Bayern, he's found his footballing home here. World-class players consider very carefully where they sign their contracts these days. We're pleased that Kingsley has extended with us long-term: when he's on the ball, the fans get excited. People come to the stadium to see such players."

Board member for sport Hasan Salihamidzic added: "We're very happy Kingsley Coman has committed to FC Bayern with a long-term contract. Kingsley came to FC Bayern in 2015 as one of Europe's greatest attacking talents. He has developed into a world-class player with us over the past six and a half years.

"He already made history with his goal in the 2020 Champions League final and now has a great chance to leave his mark on an era. 'King', with his quality as a provider and his goalscoring threat, is of utmost importance for the future of our team.

"Our aim is for FC Bayern to continue to compete at the top of Europe in the coming years. With the contract extensions of Kingsley, Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka, we have laid a strong foundation for this."
