Ilkay Gundogan: Linked with Manchester U

Midfielder Ilkay Gundogan has commited his future to Borussia Dortmund by signing a new contract.

The highly-rated Germany international, a reported target for a host of clubs across Europe, including Manchester United, has penned a new deal to keep him at the Bundesliga club until 2016.

The 23-year-old has barely featured this season because of a back problem, but was still set to have plenty of suitors over the summer.

Gundogan told the club's official website: "I am very grateful that my club gives me the opportunity to continue to be part of this special team and this very special environment.

"I will do everything to be able to help my team-mates again soon and am very optimistic heading into the coming weeks and months."

The news is a huge boost for Dortmund and coach Jurgen Klopp, who will lose star striker Robert Lewandowski to Bayern Munich in the summer.

Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc said: "Against the backdrop of this special injury-related situation we are very happy with this deal and hope that Ilkay will fulfil his full potential for Dortmund in the coming season."
