Borussia have extended Christoph Kramer’s contract, set to expire at the end of the current season, until 2023.

World Cup winner Christoph Kramer has committed to another three years with the Foals, after the club extended the 28-year-old’s contract until 2023. Kramer has made a total of 171 competitive appearances for Borussia Mönchengladbach, scoring 10 goals in the process. This season, he has made 13 appearances: ten in the Bundesliga and three in the UEFA Europa League. "Christoph has become one of the leading figures in our team in recent years. Both as a footballer and as an opinionated character in the dressing room, he’s become massively important and we’re pleased to be extending his contract," said sporting director Max Eberl.

In 2013, Christoph Kramer came to Borussia on a two-year loan deal from Bayer Leverkusen. In his first two years, he already became an established part of the defensive midfield, making 73 competitive appearances (5 goals): 63 in the Bundesliga, six in European competitions and four in the DFB-Pokal. In 2014, he won the World Cup with Germany in Brazil, before returning to Bayer Leverkusen a year later. In 2016, however, Borussia gave the midfield man a permanent contract and he returned to become a regular starter for the Foals once again. Since then, Kramer has made a further 98 competitive appearances and scored a further five goals across all competitions.
