Gignac agrees new Toulouse deal

Toulouse striker Andre-Pierre Gignac has finally put an end to speculation surrounding his future by signing a one-year contract extension.

The 23-year-old has netted 26 league goals in 66 outings since arriving from Lorient in 2006, recently earning international honours with France and scoring his first goal in a 2010 World Cup qualifier against the Faroe Islands.

As a result, Ligue 1's 2008/09 Golden Boot winner has been linked with a move away from the Stadium Municipal, with seven-time French champions Lyon, and English trio Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United all tipped to snare the striker.

However, he will now be going nowhere for the foreseeable future, after agreeing a new deal with Toulouse until 2013.

"Andre-Pierre Gignac has extended his contract with Toulouse until 2013," said a statement on the club's official website.

"It is a strong sign which indicates the desire of the club to keep its best individuals as well as that of the player to show how attached he is to Les Violets."
