Lell: Agrees extension
Bayern Munich defender Christian Lell has agreed a new two-year contract extension with the Bundesliga champions.
The 23-year-old has yet to put pen to paper on the deal, but Bayern executive manager Uli Hoeness confirmed that an agreement has been reached.
Lell had been contracted to the Bavarian giants until the end of next season, although he will be tied to the club until 2011 once he signs his extension.
"We have sorted things out with him. He has agreed to stay for two years, so through to 2011," Hoeness told Kicker.
Lell has enjoyed an excellent breakthrough season at the Allianz Arena, making a total of 42 appearances this term.
