Mats Hummels and Borussia Dortmund to discuss contract extension

As reported by Sport Bild, Borussia Dortmund’s Hans-Joachim Watzke and Sebastian Kehl will sit down with Mats Hummels to discuss a new contract. This comes after the former Germany international made the decision to stay at Dortmund.

BVB will sit down with Hummels in the new year to discuss a new deal. They hope to offer the defender a one-year contract with the option of an additional year. Hummels is the only senior Dortmund centre-back alongside Niklas Süle and Nico Schlotterbeck, who both joined last summer. 

The 33-year-old’s contract is set to expire at the end of the season. Hummels rejoined Dortmund from Bayern Munich in 2019 after originally leaving North Rhine-Westphalia for Bavaria in 2016. 

Hummels has played 19 matches for Dortmund this season, starting 13 of the games in the league. His form during those games led to him being possibly called up to the World Cup squad, however, Hansi Flick preferred to go with Southampton’s Armel Bella-Kotchap (20).
