Thomas Müller is aiming to continue his "fantastic success story" with Bayern Munich after signing a contract extension with the Bundesliga champions through to 2024.

The 32-year-old joined the club aged 10 and has made over 600 competitive appearances since making his first-team debut in 2008.

"I'm delighted to have extended my contact with FC Bayern Munich until 2024 today. The journey we've been on since I joined the FCB academy in 2000 has been a fantastic success story up to now," said the Germany international forward, who has just picked up an unprecedented 11th Bundesliga winner's medal, on the club's official website.

"It gives me immense pleasure to wear the red colours year after year, on and off the pitch - even if the wind blows in your face from time to time. So, let's keep going together!"

Müller, who hails from Pähl am Ammersee near Munich, has also collected two UEFA Champions Leagues, the FIFA Club World Cup and UEFA Super Cup, and the DFB Cup six times in his career, as well as helping Germany claim the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

"Thomas Müller is an icon who wears the club badge in his heart," said Bayern CEO Olivier Kahn. "FC Bayern has always been characterised by continuity, and therefore we're pleased that we've managed to extend the contract of this important player. He's someone who assumes leadership and is also an important character in the dressing room with his personality."

"You can't imagine Thomas Müller without FC Bayern - nor FC Bayern without Thomas Müller. That's why we're very happy that Thomas has extended his contract until summer 2024," added sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic.

"Thomas is a leader who's hungry for success, and a role model on and off the pitch who embodies FC Bayern better than anyone."
