Hertha Berlin's Salomon Kalou signs new deal with Bundesliga club

Salomon Kalou has signed a new contract with Hertha Berlin.

Kalou joined Hertha from Lille in 2014, and his current deal had been due to expire at the end of the season.

The club have not yet confirmed the terms of his new contract.

Ivory Coast international Kalou has six goals and four assists in 16 games this season, and general manager Michael Preetz told the club's official website: "We are delighted that Salomon has chosen to stay with us despite the other offers he received.

"He is an important part of this team and will be a big help to us to improve further in the future."

Former Chelsea player Kalou said he felt "very comfortable" in Berlin and added: "I still have plenty that I want to achieve with Hertha.

"I would like to help the team continue to progress as it has in the last few years."

Recently, Kalou said it was his dream to move to the United States and play Major League Soccer at the end of his career.
