The 24-year-old has penned a new deal at Signal Iduna Park which will keep him there until 2016 after a host of Premier League clubs including Chelsea and Manchester United had been making moves to sound out the defender.
Sky Sports claim the club and player had been discussing a new deal which will see the player receive a substantial wage increase confirming his worth to the club who beat Spanish champions Real Madrid to top the so-called Champions League group of death in turn reaching the knock-out stages. Despite lying a way off the pace domestically, Dortmund are fast becoming a club people take serious note of and securing the long-term future of such a coveted prospect only confirms this further.
The Serbian international has gone from strength to strength in the Bundesliga and is only set to continue to impress both domestically and internationally. Unfortunately for what seems like half of the Premier League, they will not have the pleasure of it being for them.
