After numerous talks between the club and Roman Bürki, the agreement for a contract extension has officially been announced. Borussia Dortmund’s first-choice goalkeeper previous contract was set to expire at the end of the 2020/21 season, now though his contract has been extended for 2 more years.
The club’s Managing Director, Michael Zorc, said “We’re delighted that in Roman Bürki, we will continue to have one of the most consistent goalkeepers in the Bundesliga between the sticks. This means we have secured an excellent player for an important position in the long term. It speaks volumes for Roman that he has already kept 12 clean sheets this season.”

Roman Bürki expressed his delight with the extension, as he was quoted saying, “I’m very happy at Borussia Dortmund and I feel the trust placed in me by the club management, the coach and my fellow players.”
The contract extension will end the speculation regarding the Polish International’s future. He was previously linked with a potential move to Chelsea, but cold water has been poured over that after the extension.
