His superb form made him a hot transfer target for several top European clubs with his future unclear prior to Thursday’s contract extension.

“I am pleased to continue wearing the RB Leipzig shirt,” the 24-year-old said. “After our great achievement in winning the DFB-Pokal [German Cup], it remained clear that my story here isn’t over yet – we want more.

“RB Leipzig have made a name for themselves on the international stage in recent years and have shown time and again that we can compete for titles. We want to build on that going forward and go one step further.”
