Germany winger Julian Brandt has signed a two-year contract extension with Bayer Leverkusen to 2021.
The 21-year-old, who is battling for a spot in Germany's World Cup squad, opted to stay despite interest from some of Europe's top teams.
He has scored six times in the league and provided four assists this season, grabbing a total of 24 goals in 126 Bundesliga matches since joining Leverkusen midway through the 2013-14 campaign.
"I see that something really big is growing here," Brandt, who has won 14 caps for his country, said in a statement.
"The recent contract extensions of Jonathan Tah and Lars Bender (both Germany internationals) have shown that. We want to win titles."
Leverkusen are fifth in the Bundesliga with six matches left in the campaign, with the top four teams qualifying for next season's Champions League.
