Nuremberg extends Timothy Chandler's contract


FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) - United States defender Timothy Chandler has decided to extend his contract with Nuremberg despite being courted by Europa League-bound Stuttgart.

Chandler signed a two-year extension that keeps him at the club until June 30, 2015.

Chandler said Wednesday he was "honored" to be sought by a club headed for a European competition next season, "but for me it was clear that Nuremberg was my first choice."

Chandler says he's grateful to Nuremberg, "where I became a Bundesliga player."
