Ter Stegen pulls brakes on contract renewal


Ter Stegen has no intention of extending his contract at Borussia Monchengladbach. The German club’s sporting director, Max Eberl, had expressed the club’s intention to offer the keeper a new deal. However, Stegen got in there first and made it very clear that he will not sit down to discuss a new deal right now.

“I’m in no hurry. My contract is up in 2015 and there is a lot of time left until then,” the keeper told Kicker. He is the favourite to replace Vald├®s next season. His name was already mentioned this summer as an immediate transfer target, but the move was temporarily shelved when Vald├®s said that he would be staying this season.
