Joachim Loew has agreed to extend his contract with Germany until 2022.

Loew's deal runs through 2020 and has been in the post for 12 years.

Loew had been linked to replacing Arsene Wenger as manager of Arsenal.

“This is a big responsibility to continue developing players,” said Loew. “To work with the best players in Germany, then develop them and to make them better, to form a team that sets the highest goals, this is what drives and still gives me joy.”
