Germany international Kevin Grobkreutz has confirmed that he is on the verge of signing a new deal at Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund.
The 22-year-old forward is about to sign a contract until 2014 as an extension to his current terms, which expire in the June of 2012.
Grobkreutz is expected to make his second appearance for Germany in this week's friendly against Sweden and his career is also developing at club level.
He told Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper: "The club and I have an agreement. I am definitely going to sign the new contract in the near future."
Borussia Dortmund general manager Michael Zorc said: "He has exceeded the hopes we had in him when he joined us.
"It is obvious that we would want to keep such a player for a longer period of time."
