HAMBURG, Germany (AP) – American forward Bobby Wood extended his contract with Bundesliga side Hamburger SV on Saturday to 2021.

Wood, who joined Hamburg from second-tier Union Berlin, scored five goals and set up two more in 28 Bundesliga games. He had 17 goals in 31 second-division games for Union the season before.

''Not only his goals count for us, but his readiness to run and challenge,'' Hamburg sporting director Jens Todt said. ''Bobby is a key player for our offense and a real team player.''

Wood has eight goals in 32 appearances for the United States.
