MADRID - Coach Miguel Angel Lotina has agreed to extend his contract with Deportivo Coruna until the end of the 2009-10 season, the Primera Liga club said on Thursday.

Lotina, 51, took the helm in 2007 and led the side to ninth place in the table last year, qualifying for the UEFA Cup via the Intertoto Cup.

Depor are now eighth with six games to play and in the running for a place in Europe again next season.
