Amid recent speculation over his future, German forward Julian Draxler has decided to further extend his stay with PSG.

Julian Draxler has signed a new contract with Paris Saint-Germain, the club announced on Monday.

The German midfielder’s new deal will run through to 2024, extending his stay in the French capital for three additional seasons.

Draxler’s decision comes amid rumours linking him with a move back to Germany to join Bayern Munich, while the midfielder has also previously been linked with Arsenal and Leeds.

The midfielder originally arrived in January 2017, making the move to Paris after shining for Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga in 2015-16.

Prior to that, Draxler emerged as a standout for Schalke, coming through the club’s academy before spending five full seasons with the first team.

In total, Draxler has won Ligue 1 three times, the Coupe de France and Coupe de la Ligue three times apiece and the Trophee des Champions twice, while also helping PSG reach the finals of the Champions League in 2019-20.

A World Cup winner with Germany, Draxler has made 173 appearances for PSG, scoring 24 goals, including four this season.
