Germany midfielder Sami Khedira has signed a two-year contract extension at Juventus, keeping him at the Serie A club until 2021.

Since joining Juventus in 2015 on a transfer from Real Madrid, Khedira has become one of the squad's cornerstones, helping the Italian team win three Serie A titles, the Coppa Italia three times and an Italian Super Cup.

"The German midfielder puts pen to paper on a new two-year deal with Juventus," the Italian club said in a statement on their official website on Thursday (AEST).

Khedira, who was part of the squad that won the 2014 FIFA World Cup, is the midfielder that got the most playing time with Juventus over the last three years, collecting a total of 20 goals and 14 assists in the process.

The 31-year-old, who won the UEFA Champions League with Real Madrid in 2014, was a starter in Juve's first three Serie A matches this season and scored once in the 3-2 win over Chievo on August 19.
