The talented midfield anchorman, who joined Stuttgart from Leverkusen last season, becomes a free agent in the summer and despite having lost his regular first-team spot in recent months, Magath is keen to extend the player's stay at the Gottlieb-Daimler Stadium.
''It was bad luck that Jure lost his place in the team due to an injury,'' said Magath. ''He then struggled a bit to get going again.
''But he is still a valuable member of the team. I believe he will still be around next season.''
The 24-year-old admits that he is content with life in Stuttgart and would be willing to commit himself to the club in the summer.
''I am very happy here and if the club wants to open talks with me, I am ready to do so,'' stressed Vranjes.
