Borussia Dortmund midfielder Mahmoud Dahoud has seemingly ended any immediate speculation over his future by signing a new contract with the German club amidst links with Tottenham Hotspur.

Dortmund announced on their official website that the midfielder has signed a one-year extension with the club after his previous contract was set to expire in the summer of 2022.

The Daily Mail reported in March that Tottenham Hotspur were monitoring the midfielder’s situation but the contract extension will surely be bad news for any clubs wanting to tempt the 25-year-old away. Manchester City and Chelsea were also interested in signing him.

The midfielder has featured 101 times for Dortmund in all competitions since signing for the club in 2017. He started the DFB-Pokal final, grabbing an assist in the 4-0 win which resulted in Dortmund winning the trophy.

Despite Jadon Sancho and Erling Haaland taking all the headlines, Dahoud emerged as one of BVB’s bright sparks under interim boss Edin Terzic last season.

Dahoud is a great player, he put in some great performances for Dortmund last season. A one-year contract extension will guard teams off for now, but the eagles will circle again if a more long-term contract isn’t signed.  It’s hard to see him dropping Champions League football for Tottenham now anyway.
