Piszczek pens new Dortmund deal

Borussia Dortmund full-back Lukasz Piszczek has agreed a contract extension which ties him to the Bundesliga champions until June 2016.

The Poland international appeared in all but one of Dortmund's 34 games last season as they swept to the title, and sporting director Michael Zorc is delighted the 26-year-old has opted to lengthen his stay at the Westfalenstadion.

Zorc told Kicker: "We are very pleased to extend Lukasz's contract long-term because he is among the best players in his position in the Bundesliga."

Piszczek joined Dortmund on a free transfer from Hertha Berlin last summer.
