Gomez signs on at Stuttgart
Mario Gomez has signed a one-year extension to his contract at Bundesliga champions Vfb Stuttgart. The Germany striker, 22, is now tied down to the club until 2012, who acted swiftly after he hit 14 goals in 22 last season.
"By extending his contract by one year, Mario has clearly shown that he thinks of no other club than Stuttgart," general manager Horst Heldt declared at a club shareholders meeting.
"Despite the interest from several foreign clubs in the last few weeks, Mario has never considered a transfer.
"We are delighted that he has chosen Stuttgart for his future and we are planning with him in the long term."
Last season was his breakthrough campaign, helping Stuttgart win the title and winning three caps for the German national team, for whom he has scored three goals.
