Giovanni Reyna's contract with Borussia Dortmund has been extended until 2023, according to Kicker.
The 17-year-old's deal officially runs until 2021, but BVB have a deal in place to extend it by a further two years, as per the report.
FIFA regulations state that clubs aren't allowed to offer contracts longer than three years to under-18 players. Therefore, Dortmund have agreed a follow-up contract with Reyna behind the curtain, as per Kicker.
The highly-rated youngster has emerged as a regular part of Dortmund's first-team squad this season, making 11 appearances with a goal and an assist to his name.
