Roberto Firmino has signed a two-year extension with Hoffenheim.

Firmino has played a major part in Hoffenheim’s success in front of goal this season, scoring 13 and providing a further 10 assists to help the club into 10th place in the Bundesliga.

The 22-year-old, who has made 100 Bundesliga appearances for the club, had been linked with the likes of Schalke, Wolfsburg, Manchester United, Liverpool and AC Milan but instead opted to sign a contract extension.

The Brazilian, whose previous deal had been due to expire in 2015, told the club’s official website: “I feel very much at home here. I like the path that the club is on. We play exciting football, the team spirit is great and I will continue working hard to help the team as much as I can in the future.”

The club’s sporting director, Alexander Rosen, praised Firmino as “a player with incredible ability, who has developed immensely in the last year under [coach] Markus Gisdol.”

German tabloid Bild believes Firmino is likely to leave Hoffenheim in 2015 but the new contract will guarantee Hoffenheim a minimum transfer fee of 25 million euros.
