"Bernd is a great goalkeeper," Leverkusen chairman Michael Schade said. "He proved that for fives year, every week and game after game. With him, we have bound an exceptional goalkeeper on a long term."
Leno stands since 2011 between Leverkusen's post and has made 167 competitive appearances ever since. His performances earned him a call up into Germany's national squad where he made his debut in May 2016.
