Melayro Bogarde has put speculation regarding his future to bed by signing a new contract with Hoffenheim.

Reports have linked the 19-year-old with Ajax and Barcelona among others, but he has now opted to extend his contract with Hoffenheim until 2024.

"Melayro is a highly talented, technically skilled and flexible defensive player, who has looked very promising domestically and in Europe," said Hoffenheim chief Alexander Rosen.

Bogarde made a total of 15 appearances for Hoffenheim last season.
