Thomas Muller has been rewarded with his fine form by signing a new two-year contract with Bayern Munich.

The forward, who had been sidelined by previous FC Bayern coach Niko Kovac, has returned to the starting line-up under Hansi Flick, who was made permanent coach last week following a hugely successful stint as interim boss.

Muller has spent his entire career at Bayern, joining the club as a ten-year-old, and has won the Bundesliga title eight times to date, as well as the Champions League once, and the 2014 World Cup as part of the German national team.

Four years before that World Cup success, Muller won the 2010 World Cup Golden Boot, but he has been more of a provider for Bayern this season.

The versatile 30-year-old has 16 assists this season at time of writing - the joint-most in Europe's elite leagues alongside Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne - and he has chipped in with a further six league goals to help Bayern to the top of the Bundesliga, as well as reaching the semi-finals of the German Cup and last-16 of the Champions League.

His time at the Allianz Arena could have come to an end following his bust-up with Kovac, however, he has now signed a two-year extension which keeps him at Bayern until 2023.

"This club is not just any old employer for me," he told the club's official website.

"It’s my passion. I’m happy that I’ll be here for two extra years, and I’ll give everything on and off the pitch."

Muller had been linked with several clubs in recent weeks including Manchester United.
