Schmelzer re-signing pleases Zorc

12 January 2013 13:48

Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc is delighted Marcel Schmelzer has elected to extend his contract until 2017.

The 24-year-old defender penned a new deal on Friday, and Zorc believes the Germany international perfectly reflects the Bundesliga champions' ideals.

"Marcel is an important component of what is still a young team," Zorc told the club's website.

"He reflects BVB's philosophy to continue the path we're on with the core of this promising and identity-promoting team."

Schmelzer was a product of the Magdeburg youth academy, but has become a key figure at Dortmund since joining the club in 2005.

He has made 15 Bundesliga appearances so far this season.
