The highly-rated centre-half has previously been linked with leading sides in Germany, Spain and England, but will be going nowhere any time soon

Jonathan Tah has extended his contract at Bayer Leverkusen until 2023, the club have confirmed.

The Germany centre-back signed a five-year deal at Leverkusen when he joined from Bundesliga rivals Hamburg in July 2015.

He has since become a mainstay of their defence, chalking up 69 league appearances.

A short statement on the club's Twitter account read: "FanTAHstic News! @jonatah has extended his contract with #Bayer04 until 2023!"

Tah is regarded as one of the most promising defenders in European football and the 22-year-old has previously been linked with the likes of Barcelona, Borussia Dortmund and Liverpool.

His performances at Leverkusen saw him earn a first Germany call-up in March 2016, and he was taken to the European Championship in the same year to replace the injured Antonio Rudiger.
