Ilkay Gundogan: Heading towards penning a new deal

The 22-year-old, who is currently on holiday in Turkey, has told Kicker magazine he plans to sit down with the Westphalian club and discuss a new deal upon his return.

"I am very, very grateful to this club and I know what I have here," he said. "The club has helped me to mature a lot and find my way into the national team.

"As soon as I get back, I am going to talk with my family and my father will then sit down with (Dortmund's general manager Hans-Joachim) Watzke and (director of sport Michael) Zorc."

Gundogan joined the club two years ago from Nurnberg as a replacement for Nuri Sahin, who had joined Real Madrid.

Speculation has suggested Gundogan may follow the same path as Sahin, who is now back in Dortmund on loan from the Spaniards until the end of next season, but the midfielder has ruled that out for the time being.

"I am definitely going to be playing for Dortmund next season," he said.

Gundogan's current contract with Dortmund expires in 2015.

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
