Kiessling extends Leverkusen stay

German international Stefan Kiessling has signed a new contract extension with Bayer Leverkusen.

Kiessling's previous deal was not due to expire until 2015 but that has not prevented Leverkusen from extending it by a further two years.

Stefan Kiessling has become a top performer at Bayer Leverkusen, a leader and the face of the club.

His development since 2006 has been phenomenal. I hope he will finish his career with us.

– Leverkusen chief executive Wolfgang Holzhauser
