Bayer Leverkusen striker Stefan Kiessling has extended his contract with the club until 2015.
The Bundesliga's top scorer has put pen-to-paper on a more lucrative deal, despite already having more than two years remaining on his old contract.
Kiessling, 26, who has netted 16 goals so far this term, arrived at Leverkusen in 2006 and is optimistic about his future at the club.
"My family and I are very happy in Leverkusen and the club has excellent long-term potential," he said.
"Therefore, there is no reason for me to change anything."
Kiessling is expected to be part of Joachim Low's squad for the World Cup this summer and Leverkusen director of sport Wolfgang Holzhauser is proud to have such a player in his squad.
"We are extremely happy that, with Stefan Kiessling, we will continue to have one of the best German strikers among our ranks," he said.
"We had been in agreement for a while, and now we have concluded the formalities."
Meanwhile, manager Jupp Heynckes says goalkeeper Rene Adler must have to deal with criticism, after coming under scrutiny in recent weeks.
The 25-year-old shot-stopper has been the subject of media flak, but his manager says he needs to come to terms with it.
"Rene has to deal with the pressure and the criticism launched," he said.
"I think he needs to do so. He is a good young goalkeeper."
