Topics

Bastia have tied down experienced defender Sebastien Squillaci until June 2016 after he agreed a new one-year contract extension.

Sebastien Squillaci has extended his contract with Bastia for a further year in a deal that will see him stay at the club until June 2016.

The central defender, whose contract was set to expire at the end of the season, moved to the Ligue 1 club from Arsenal in 2013 and has since made 58 appearances in all competitions, scoring four goals.

Squillaci was also the hero earlier this month when he netted the winning penalty in a shootout to take Bastia to their first Coupe de la Ligue final since 1985, the Corsicans knocking out his former club Monaco.

Ghislain Printant's side are 13th in the table following an eight-match unbeaten run in the league.
