The midfield starlet's previous deal with the club was due to expire in June and he was linked with fellow Bundesliga outfits Hannover and Freiburg.
But a deal has been struck which will keep the 20-year-old at Weserstadion until June 2016.
He told the club's official website: "I am delighted that my future has been sorted out. I am looking forward to my next years at Werder Bremen. I hope everything will be better for us all next season.
"I have been with the club since the U11-team and I always had the desire to play regularly in the first team.
"I am living this dream. I want to progress further at this club."
