Bayern Munich may be working on completing the first team squad this summer, but that doesn’t mean that the club has taken their eyes off the ball with regard to the Campus. On Thursday, the club announced contract extensions for four youth players and sent one out on loan.

Eyüp Aydin, Mike Eberhart, Aleksandar Pavlovic, and Roman Reinelt have all agreed to extensions to keep them with Bayern through the summer of 2023.

“Aleksandar has been with us since 2013, Roman since 2014, Eyüp since 2017 and Mike since 2018,” Jochen Sauer, head of the Campus said. “We are very happy that these four guys will stay with FC Bayern for a longer period of time and that they want to take the next development steps with us.”

Aydin made his debut with Bayern II last weekend in the win against Augsburg II, becoming the third youngest Bayern II player ever in the process. While he’ll most likely stay with Bayern II until first team players return from their summer vacations and decisions are made on other youth players, it’s likely that Aydin will join Bayern’s U-19 team this season alongside Eberhart and Pavlovic.

As part of his extension, Reinelt will be loaned to fellow Regionalliga Bayern club SSV Ulm for the season. Sauer said of the loan, “Roman’s loan to SSV Ulm shows that this new partnership is lived out at club level. All three parties will benefit from this loan.” Earlier this season, Bayern reached an agreement on a partnership with Ulm for talent identification and player development.
