Borussia Dortmund are on the verge of agreeing a new contract with Swiss goalkeeper Roman Bürki, according to reports from Bild in Germany.

He made 199 appearances and kept a total of 71 clean sheets for the club before the postponement of football due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and looks set to extend his stay in NRW.

Current deal

Bürki's joined BVB back in 2015 from SC Freiburg for a total of 3.5m euros, and in his first season at the club replaced legendary goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller as first-choice in his inaugural campaign.

Although he endured a rough patch of form in 2017-18, he has since recovered and has cemented himself as the number one at Dortmund.

His current contract is set to end at the culmination of the 2020-21 campaign, but both sides want to renew his time at the club.

Talking to Kicker in January which Borussia were at a training camp in Marbella, Bürki said:

“I can’t imagine anything else at the moment. I owe a lot to the club. He (Zorc) stood by me even in difficult times. I know what I want and my advisor knows that too.”

New contract

The 29-year-old is set to put pen-to-paper on a new four-year deal with BVB very soon.

Speaking to DPA last month, Bürki provided an update on his contract:

"It's not a question of money. We have been negotiating to try to find out what's possible."

The new contract is believed to earn the 29-year-old a total of 4 million euros a year and according to the German outlet, should be announced in the coming days.

The 29-year-old is an integral part of Julian Favre's Dortmund side, and if he could secure his future in the club, then the contract will keep him in Dortmund until he is 33.
