Berlin, May 9: German Bundesliga side Schalke 04 and goalkeeper Timo Hildebrand have agreed on a contract extension until the end of the 2012-13 season.
Schalke now has three goalkeepers under contract in Rolf Faehrmann, Lars Unnerstall and Hildebrand.
Schalke signed the former German international in October 2011, when he was out of contract, and they were looking for someone to fill in for the injured goalie Ralf Faehrmann.
“I am delighted to continue at Schalke as I feel very comfortable here. For me the contract in October was a huge opportunity,” Hildebrand, 33, said.
