Werder Bremen officials have produced a major coup by persuading young attacker David Selke to extend his contract with the club, according to Bild.
The 19-year-old initially wanted to quit Weserstadion in the summer as he had lucrative offers from Benfica and an unnamed Premier League club, but Werder did not want to listen to offers.
The player and his family have been impressed by the club’s actions and Selke is now set to sign a new deal until June 2018, with no release clause included.
Werder expect the deal to be made official within a week or two, with the attacker, who is currently earning €120,000 per campaign, set for a major pay rise.
David Selke has so far made 6 Bundesliga appearances for the Weserstadion outfit and he is on the verge of nailing down a regular starting berth.
The forward has largely impressed playing for Germany Under-19 side, scoring 11 goals in 10 outings.
