Goalkeeper Jakob Busk extends contract

The work continues on 1. FC Union Berlin's squad for next season and the club have agreed a contract extension for 26-year-old goalkeeper Jakob Busk.

The Danish-born stopper is one of the longest-serving players at the club since arriving in Köpenick in January 2016 from Copenhagen. Busk has made 57 appearances for Union and kept 18 clean sheets when on the pitch. This season, Busk has formed our goalkeeping trio alongside Moritz Nicolas and Rafal Gikiewicz. 

"I've been here for almost four and a half years now and feel at home at Union. In the several conversations I have had with the people in charge, I have felt enormous appreciation for myself, and the coaching team knows that they can rely on me at any moment. As a pro, it's naturally my ambition to play as much as possible. I will continue to offer my services during the coming period and want to support the team in the best possible way," said Busk.

"Jakob is a great character who is always at the service of the team. Everyone at the club knows about his quality, so we are happy that he will continue to be available to us. When we are realigning our goalkeeper position this summer, it is important for us to have a Union-experienced goalkeeper in Jakob who is always ambitious and loyal," said Oliver Ruhnert, 1. FC Union Berlin's Director for Professional Football.

Busk's new contract will be valid for both Bundesliga & 2.Bundesliga competitions.
