Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno has signed a new contract until 2020, but teammate Karim Bellarabi is facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines after sustaining a muscle injury 10 seconds into the 3-1 defeat of Hamburg on Saturday.
Leno, 24, had not made a Bundesliga appearance when he joined Leverkusen from Stuttgart in 2011 but has developed into one of the division's best performers in his position and is now Germany's third-choice goalkeeper.
"I feel at home here in Leverkusen," Leno, who had been linked with a switch to RB Leipzig earlier this year, told the club's official website, adding the "constant development" at the Bay-Arena convinced him to stay. "This club has set itself very ambitious targets and I share them too."
Bayer coach Roger Schmidt added: "He's a complete goalkeeper even if he has the potential to improve even further. When you can secure a key player like that then it's a good sign for the club and for us as a team."
Meanwhile, Leno's colleague for club and country Bellarabi is set for a spell on the sidelines after suffering a torn groin muscle during the opening exchanges of the win against Hamburg.
"I will try everything to come back as soon as possible," Bellarabi said. "It's extremely bitter for me."
