Bayer Leverkusen coach Peter Bosz has taken a step closer to a contract extension after leading his team to a number of impressive wins in recent weeks.

Bosz's current deal is due to run out at the end of the season, but he's likely to put pen to paper on a new contract during the winter break if he's able to continue the good form this month, according to Sport Bild.

The report claims that Leverkusen CEO Fernando Carro was beginning to doubt Bosz after an unconvincing start to the season that saw 'Die Werkself' lose their first three games in the Champions League and put in inconsistent performances in the Bundesliga.

But the 56-year-old has proven himself through the last month with wins over Atlético Madrid, Lokomotiv Moscow, Wolfsburg and Bayern München.

"Winning at Bayern is always something special. But with the form they're in at the moment, it's extraordinary," Leverkusen boss Rudi Völler told Sport Bild and added:

"The victories against Atletico Madrid and in Moscow especially were even more important because we were at risk of getting eliminated. Thanks to these wins, we're still in Europe and even have a small chance of reaching the round of 16 ahead of our last match at the group stage against Juventus."

Bosz was appointed Leverkusen coach in December 2018.
