Ilkay Gundogan: The midfielder is expected to sign a new deal at Borussia Dortmu

The Bundesliga outfit are understood to be keen for the 22-year-old midfielder to sign a new deal beyond 2015.

Germany international Gundogan, who joined the club from Nuremberg two years ago, enjoyed a successful run in the side last season.

He played an influential role during their run to the Champions League final and scored from the spot against Bayern Munich at Wembley in their 2-1 defeat.

"I am keen to ensure he (Ilkay) remains with Borussia Dortmund," father and agent Irfan told Kicker Sportmagazin.

"He is doing fine so it's a bit early to move to a club in England or Spain at this point in time.

"Borussia Dortmund will be coming up with an offer of a new contract soon. We will be able to oversee things much better then."

Meanwhile, BVB sporting director Michael Zorc told Westdweutche Allgermeine Zeitung newspaper: "We are keen to sign new terms with Ilkay Gundogan.

"I am able to confirm that we have held talks with his father Irfan and we feel confident he will sign."

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
