Jedvaj joined Bayer 04 Leverkusen from AS Roma in the summer of 2014. The versatile defender initially joined Bayer 04 on loan for six months but was then signed. "Tin has developed really well here with us, has played for his country and is now an important part of the Croatian squad," said sporting director Jonas Boldt. "Unfortunately he had a setback last season with a serious injury. In the second half of the season he did show his great potential again to earn himself a place at the World Cup. We are convinced he is capable of much more."
Tin Jedvaj is very happy with a contract extension. "The club have always supported me. They always stood behind me particularly in the difficult phases. Now I feel at home here and I'm looking forward to the coming years. This team has good character and really good players. We can achieve a lot."
Since his move to Leverkusen, Tin Jedvaj Has made 84 appearances for the Werkself. This season, the Croatia international (15 caps) has played four games in the Bundesliga and Europa League.
