N’Zonzi extends Sevilla stay

Sevilla midfielder Steven N'Zonzi has penned a new contract to keep him at the Spanish outfit until 2020.

The Frenchman was linked with moves to Barcelona and Chelsea recently, but the new deal has ended speculation of his potential exit.

"Steven N'Zonzi has renewed his contract with Sevilla with one additional season until June 30, 2020," read a statement on the club's website.

"With this renewal, Sevilla recognises the French midfielder's exceptional performances, with N'Zonzi being arguably one of the most outstanding players both in Spain and in Europe."

The 28-year-old has made 73 appearances for Sevilla and his previous deal was set to expire in 2019.
