RB Leipzig confirm new deal for Gvardiol

After being linked with Chelsea in the last few days, Josko Gvardiol has now signed a new long-term contract with RB Leipzig.
RB Leipzig have put speculation over Josko Gvardiol's future to rest with the announcement that the centre-back has signed a new long-term contract with the club.

Gvardiol has been linked with Chelsea recently, with reports claiming that 'The Blues' were ready to offer €90 million to sign him in 2023.

Leipzig, however, were quick to dismiss the speculation and have now managed to tie the Croatian centre-back down to a new contract until 2027.

"I really enjoy being here and I wanted to stay here. We have a lot of work to do and a lot to achieve here. We have a good team and we're ready," said Gvardiol at a press conference today.
