RB Leipzig are in talks to extend the contract of Marcel Halstenberg, the player has confirmed in an interview with Kicker.

"My agent and RB Leipzig are in talks. We'll see where this goes," said Halstenberg, who is under contract until 2022.

"I feel very much at home in Leipzig and can fully identify with the task here," he added.

"The whole club has developed outstandingly, but at the same time we all still have big goals."

The 29-year-old versatile defender was signed from FC St. Pauli in 2015. Since then, he has made a total of 160 appearances for 'Die Roten Bullen' with 12 goals and 22 assists to his name.
