Borussia Dortmund today announced the contract extension of 33-year-old goalkeeper Marwin Hitz on a new two-year deal.
“We hold Marwin in very high regard, both in sporting terms and as a person. The contract extension is therefore a logical step,” said sporting director Michael Zorc.
Hitz joined Borussia Dortmund on a free transfer from Augsburg in 2018 and has played 25 games in all competitions, 11 of which he played this season, and has acted as back-up to Roman Bürki.
“My family and I feel very much at home in Dortmund,” said Hitz. “In terms of sport, we still have big goals this season that we want to achieve together.”
Hitz had just four-months remaining on his previous contract which was due to expire at the end of the season but will now remain at the club until 2023.
Whilst there has been a new contract for Hitz, it’s unclear yet as to whether Bürki will remain at Borussia Dortmund in the summer with reports suggesting that bosses are searching for a new number one.
