Reus and Schmelzer happy at Dortmund

Germany internationals Marco Reus and Marcel Schmelzer have reiterated that they are happy at Borussia Dortmund, with their comments coming as Die Schwarzgelben are reportedly set to offer Reus a new contract.

Dortmund's Marco Reus celebrates a starring performance.
Reus is set for a new deal.

Reus, 24, is under contract until 2017, but the Dortmund-born forward is reported to have a 35 million euro release clause that would allow him to leave.

In recent weeks, he has excelled in a new role in central midfield and has been one of the key factors in the club's recent revival in form.

Reus has been involved in 42 goals in 40 appearances for Dortmund this season, and currently tops the kicker magazine rankings for the best player of the Bundesliga season ahead of Bayern duo Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery.

With pundits tipping him to play a major role at the World Cup, German tabloid Bild reported that Dortmund are set to offer a deal that would make him their top earner and erase the release clause in his existing deal, signed in 2012.

"I don't say anything about the contents of contracts, but I don't have to emphasise every time just how fine in feel at Dortmund," Reus told the paper on Tuesday.

Left-back Schmelzer has been another player linked with a move, with media reports in England suggesting he could be on the way to Liverpool.

On Monday, Schmelzer, who is set to return from a thigh injury that has sidelined him since mid-March, told Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung that he had no plans to leave the German Cup finalists.

"Of course, it is nice to hear that top clubs are interested in me," he said. "But I am under contract here until 2017. I feel very -- no, very, very -- good here."
