Bayer Leverkusen have handed goalkeeper Rene Adler a contract extension.

The 22-year-old custodian put pen-to-paper on a three-year deal at the weekend, in a contract that binds him to the BayArena until 2012.

"I'm very happy that we have reached the agreement, "Adler told the club's official website.

"In Leverkusen we are moving in the right direction and I want to be part of things as we continue to develop our young team."

Adler, who took over as No.1 at Leverkusen from Hans-Jorg Butt last season, has been in impressive form for the club and is widely tipped to play for Germany in the future.

"He has often proved his great ability over the last few months," commented Bayer sport director Rudi Voller.

"The way he plays is the future of goalkeeping and I'm certain Rene Adler will give us much joy in years to come."
