Bayern Munich goalkeeper Sven Ulreich has extended his contract at the Allianz Arena for three years.

The 29-year-old, whose previous deal was due to expire at the end of the campaign, will stay at the club until at least June 2021.

Ulreich, who joined from Stuttgart in 2015, has played 37 games for Bayern, most of them this season following Manuel Neuer's long-term injury in September.

Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic told the official club website: "The last three years have shown that we can always rely on Sven Ulreich as a goalkeeper as well as a person.

"Especially this season he has played a big part in ensuring we have a big lead in the Bundesliga and also good chances in the Champions League and German Cup."

Ulreich was in goal on Saturday as Bayern stayed 18 points clear in the Bundesliga table after Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller netted first-half goals in a 2-1 home win against Schalke 04.
