Cristhian Stuani signed a new contract at Girona, having been linked with LaLiga champions Barcelona.
Stuani emerged as a target for Spanish leaders Barca in January, however, a move did not materialise.
Now, veteran forward Stuani has signed a deal until June 2022, Girona announced on Friday.
The 32-year-old Uruguay international has scored 12 goals in LaLiga this season – the best return from a player outside of Barca pair Lionel Messi (19) and Luis Suarez (15).
