Schmelzer set for new Dortmund deal

German defender Marcel Schmelzer has revealed that he is negotiating a new deal with Borussia Dortmund.

Club chiefs are working hard to tie down their key players to long-term deals and after Mats Hummels signed a contract extension, Marcel Schmelzer and Robert Lewandowski are expected to do the same.

The full-back admits negotiations on a new deal are already ongoing and he hopes for a quick resolution.

“With Mats Hummels negotiations went quickly,” Schmelzer said in an interview with Suddeutsche Zeitung.

“With me there are just conversations going on, but I am sure that this will be off the table in no time. I cannot imagine anything better than what we have here.”

Schmelzer has a contract until June 2014 at Signal-Iduna Park, but is now set to commit his long-term future to the club.

The 24-year-old joined Borussia Dortmund from Magdeburg in 2005 and he was handed a first team debut in August 2008.

Over the course of last four and a half seasons, Schmelzer has made 111 Bundesliga appearances for the club and scored one goal in the process.
