Abidal extends Barcelona stay

Barcelona have announced that defender Eric Abidal has signed a new contract with the Champions League holders.

• Agent: Abidal exit likely

Abidal's previous terms were due to expire in the summer and, amid protracted negotiations over an extension, the France international's agent suggested he could part company with Barcelona.

But, on Monday, Barca confirmed the former Lyon player has signed a one-year extension, which times him to the Camp Nou until June 2013.

A statement on the club's official website read: "The agreement includes an option to extend it through to 2015."

Abidal - capped 60 times for France - has made 177 appearances in four years at Barca, winning the Champions League twice and the Spanish title three times, while he won much admiration for overcoming surgery to remove a liver tumour last spring.
