Ikonomidis re-signs with Lazio

Socceroo Chris Ikonomidis has extended his stay at Lazio, signing a five-year contract with the Serie A club.

Ikonomidis, 20, is yet to play a senior game for the Rome club – but he has made his Australia debut after featuring against Macedonia in March.

The talented attacking midfielder has made an impression, with the club confirming the contract on Friday.

He scored a crucial brace in Lazio youth side's Coppa Primavera win over Roma at the start of May to complete a fine season.

Ikonomidis is part of the Australia squad to face Kyrgyzstan in a World Cup qualifier on June 16.
