DORTMUND, Germany (AP) -- Borussia Dortmund defender Lukasz Piszczek has extended his contract with the club through June 2019.

The 31-year-old Piszczek says “I’m very happy about the confidence Dortmund has in me and am really proud to be able to play two more seasons in the black and yellow jersey.”
