Borussia Dortmund hopeful that Marco Reus will renew his contract

Borussia Dortmund are hopeful that Marco Reus will sign a new contract with the club.

Earlier this month, Reus revealed that he might look for “one last big contract and a final opportunity to try something different,” once his contract with Borussia Dortmund expires at the end of next season. His comments sparked speculation that he could leave Der BVB, with Arsenal and Inter Milan both interested in signing him.

But now Borussia Dortmund sporting director and club legend Michael Zorc has said that they expect the German international to extend his contract with the Black and Yellows. Zorc told Kicker that he expects Reus to stay with the club in the long term. Zorc added that considering a change of clubs is a “is a legitimate consideration if you are in that age.”

Marco Reus is currently out injured after suffering a partial ligament tear during his club’s DFB-Pokal final win against Saturday’s opponents Eintracht Frankfurt in May. He is expected to be fit once again in January. And Dortmund fans will be hoping that he can play a crucial role in his side’s Bundesliga title challenge.

Zorc also talked about the rumors linking Borussia Dortmund with goalkeepers Kevin Trapp and Timo Horn. He said that the club are totally satisfied with current No. 1 Roman Burki, and they are not in the market for a new goalkeeper.

Burki has been under-fire this season, especially after disappointing performances against Tottenham Hotspur and APOEL Nicosia in the UEFA Champions League. However, he has kept 5 clean sheets in the league and Zorc has said that both he and head-coach Peter Bosz stand behind the Swiss international.

Burki is likely to be in goal once again tomorrow, as Dortmund return to league action against Eintracht Frankfurt.
