Wendt commits to Gladbach

Borussia Mönchengladbach defender Oscar Wendt extends has signed a two-year contract extension. 

The Sweden international, whose previous deal was set to expire at the end of the current season, has now committed himself to the Bundesliga outfit until 2018.

"Oscar's become a regular and a key player for us in recent years," Gladbach's director of sport, Max Eberl, told the club's official website.

"We're very pleased that we have been able to tie him down to us for a further two years.

"He will be particularly important for the younger players this season because of his international experience.” 

Wendt joined Gladbach from FC Copenhagen in 2011, having previously turned out for IFK Göteborg in his homeland, and has established himself as the Foals' number one left-back in recent seasons.

“It is difficult to find another club in European football which is at the same level as Borussia,” said the 29-year-old, who played his 100th game for the club over the weekend.

“The team, the fans, the stadium, they are all amazing. Moving to Borussia was one of the best decisions of my life and I am very happy to be able to continue playing here.”
