Daily Diary, 07 July 2014: The Dortmund management team has offered contracts to Lars Bender and André Schürrle after having bids accepted by Leverkusen last week.
Both players have been offered four-year deals, on £125k and £96k p/w respectively. If accepted, they would become amongst the highest earners at BVB, alongside Mario Götze (£100k) and Sven Bender (£92k).
Neven Subotic has also been offered a contract extension, with his current deal due to run out next summer. He has been offered a new three-year deal, on £77k p/w and is expected to sign the new terms in the next couple of days.
Elsewhere, Wilfried Bony has signed for Real Sociedad from Vitesse Arnhem in a £9.5m move, while Sevilla have snapped up Diego Costa on a free transfer after he was released by Atletico Madrid at the end of June.
