Marc Hornschuh extends his contract until summer 2023

Four expiring contracts will not be renewed

As part of its squad planning, FC Zurich has decided not to extend the expiring contracts of Ousmane Doumbia, Salim Khelifi, Blaž Kramer and Moritz Leitner.

30-year-old Ousmane Doumbia joined FC Zurich from FC Winterthur in October 2020. The central midfielder's other clubs were AS Athlétic Adjamé in his home country of Ivory Coast, Servette FC and Yverdon Sport FC. The Ivorian made 67 appearances in official matches for FC Zurich, in which he provided eight assists.

Salim Khelifi joined FC Zurich from Eintracht Braunschweig in the summer of 2018. Since then, he scored eight goals and provided seven assists in 53 official matches for the club. During the 2019/2020 season, the 28-year-old midfielder was loaned to Holstein Kiel.

Blaž Kramer joined FC Zurich from VfL Wolfsburg II in June 2019. The 25-year-old striker was previously under contract with NK Simer Sampion Celje and NK Aluminij Kidricevo in his home country of Slovenia. The Slovenia international played 88 official matches for the club, in which he scored a total of 21 goals and 13 assists.

Midfielder Moritz Leitner, who completed his football education at TSV 1860 Munich, was under contract with Bundesliga clubs Borussia Dortmund, FC Augsburg and VfB Stuttgart. After three seasons with English side Norwich City, he joined FC Zurich in August 2021 and then played eleven official matches for the club.

We would like to thank Blaž, Moritz, Ousmane and Salim for their commitment to FC Zurich and wish them the best of luck and success for the future.
