Pierre Højbjerg signs pro contract through 2016

Alexander Hassenstein

According to a report, Pierre Højbjerg has signed a pro contract with Bayern Munich through 2016.

While many have been waiting for news on the contract extensions of first team members, we do have some contract news to talk about here. According to this report from Danish paper Tipsbladet, Pierre Højbjerg has signed his first professional contract with Bayern Munich.

Kai Lerby, Højbjerg's agent, told Tipsbladet, "We have agreed to a new contract with Bayern Munich. Pierre gets a pro contract through the summer of 2016."

The 18 year old (as of August 5) made two appearances for the Bayern first team last season becoming the youngest Bayern player ever in the Bundesliga. This season, he made four appearances for Bayern II and scored two goals. Unfortunately, an injury has sidelined him in recent weeks, and he's yet to make an appearance for the first team under Pep Guardiola in a competitive match.

Højbjerg has shown a lot of potential thus far, and it's good to see that Bayern are rewarding him with a first team contract. While the duration of three years may seem short, do remember that this is standard for first year contracts. If Højbjerg impresses over the next few seasons, there's no reason to doubt that he'll be given a long term contract.
