Edin Dzeko has pledged his loyalty to VfL Wolfsburg, as the player signed a contract extension with the German champions.

The Bosnian’s future was a popular topic of speculation in recent weeks. Italian giants AC Milan reportedly had a big rejected for the striker.

“I am delighted that we managed to agree terms before the start of the Bundesliga season,” Dzeko said. “I’m looking forward to playing in the Bundesliga and in the Champions League.”

Dzeko, who is now set to remain at the club until 2013, joined Wolfsburg from Teplice in 2007 and was a key player in the VfL team that won the Bundesliga last season.

The contract extension is announced a day after the signing of Nigerian forward Obafemi Martins from Newcastle United.
